Beschreibung:

Anyolite Ruby Mine, Longido, Tanzania A unique metamorphic mineral ruby-in-zoisite, features a striking contrast between the bright green zoisite with inclusions of dark hornblende and the red ruby. Ruby-in-zoisite occurs in a few small outcrops south of the town of Longido in Tanzania's northern province, about 50 miles northwest of Mount Kilimanjaro. Actually a "split" of a nodule, these are two book-matched slices, rarely seen in this form, with their brilliantly colorful, complete, sharply hexagonal and large terminated ruby crystals embedded in the contrasting zoisite matrix, measuring 5 x 4 ½ x ½ in.
