SP203Ruby Fuschite Sphere

SP203Ruby Fuschite Sphere


Here’s a pretty Ruby Fuschite polished sphere from India. It measures 2 5/8″ and has a very unique pattern, good polish and great design. It has a pretty green color with lots of “ruby” areas that also fluoresce under a UV/LW light as shown on the last photos below. A truly great find!

A Ruby is a variety of the mineral corundum (aluminum oxide). The color comes mainly from the chromium element. The Ruby is considered one of the four precious stones, together with the sapphire, the emerald, and the diamond. Rubies were found for centuries in Burma. They have also been found in Thailand, Sri Lanka, Madagascar, Vietnam, Nepal and Pakistan. Rubies have been found in the US states of Montana, North and South Carolina. 

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. It sometimes has Ruby Crystals which are completely opaque and unsuitable as gemstones, but are well colored and contrast strikingly against the green matrix of the Fuchsite.
