Fuchsite is a green variety of muscovite mica. It differs from most other muscovite by having a variable amount of trivalent chromium substituting for aluminum within the mineral. Chromium is the source of fuchsite’s green color. Corrundum crystals, also known as Ruby, often occur within fuchsite giving it the trade name "Ruby Fuchsite" or "Ruby in Fuchsite". Rings of kyanite are also commonly found lining the ruby inclusions.
In this set you will receive 2 large tumbled Ruby in Fuchsite stones. They are dense and are durable for everyday wear as jewelry or perfect as a pocket stone. The contrast of the fuchsite's crisp green hue along with the bright magenta ruby inclusions makes it a coveted specimen among traders and collectors for its striking aesthetics.
As with any specimen that has two or more minerals combined, the healing properties of this stone are doubled as the fuchsite and ruby work in accordance with eachother. This helps amplify each property of the minerals. Fuchsite has been implemented by shamans and healers for centuries for its stress reducing abilites and to help manifest a stable peace of mind. Ruby is known for its effective ability to ward negative energy away and to ensure heart health, physically and emotionally. Thus, the combination of these properties makes this stone perfect for unblocking and clearing the heart chakra. Ruby in fuchsite is also known as one of the birthstones for the Aquarius zodiac sign.
