Anyolite is advertised as a variety of the mineral zoisite from Kenya and the Arusha Region of Tanzania, anyolite but is actually a metamorphic rock composed of intergrown green zoisite, black tschermakite, & ruby. It is named after the Maasai word anyoli, meaning green. Anyolite is also referred to as ruby in zoisite or Tanganyika artstone. Zoisite, first known as saualpite, after its type locality, is a calcium aluminium hydroxy sorosilicate belonging to the epidote group of minerals.
Zoisite occurs as prismatic, orthorhombic (2/m 2/m 2/m) crystals or in massive form, being found in metamorphic and pegmatitic rock. Zoisite may be blue to violet, green, brown, pink, yellow, gray, or colorless. It has a vitreous luster and a conchoidal to uneven fracture. When euhedral, zoisite crystals are striated parallel to the principal axis (c-axis). Also parallel to the principal axis is one direction of perfect cleavage.
The mineral is somewhat higher than 6 in hardness, and its specific gravity ranges from 3.10 to 3.38, depending on the variety. It streaks white and is said to be brittle. Clinozoisite is a more common monoclinic polymorph of zoisite. Transparent material is fashioned into gemstones while translucent-to-opaque material is usually carved. A metamorphic rock known as anyolite consists of green zoisite with black tschermakite and ruby crystals.
These rubies themselves are not of gem quality, but nevertheless their color provides a striking contrast to the green zoisite, and greatly enhances the decorative pieces that are carved from the rock. The endmember hornblende tschermakite (Ca2(Mg,Fe2+)3Al2(Si6Al2)O22(OH)2) is a calcium rich monoclinic amphibole mineral. It is frequently synthesized along with its ternary solid solution series members tremolite and cummingtonite.

Zoisite is an energising stone said to dispel lethargy, to enhance vitality and to transform negative energy into positive energy. It can encourage you to be your own person and to revel in your own uniqueness, prompting you to follow your own path and not to follow the crowd. Zoisite is believed to enhance creativity. It is a useful stone if you have lost your creative spark as it is said to encourage you to focus on what you really enjoy and want to be doing. Zoisite is also said to promote trust in the universe and in the ultimate goodness of life, lifting your spirits and allowing you to be happy. In healing, Zoisite is believed to be a natural detoxifier and to help reduce inflammation. It is said to stimulate fertility and to help heal diseases of the ovaries and testicles. In addition Zoisite is thought to help recovery after trauma or severe illness. Zoisite is a slow acting crystal and can therefore be worn for long periods of time. Stunning, with surface and interior inclusions and fissures that refract, transmit and reflect light in thousands of directions. A beautiful addition to a rock/crystal collection. This item is new but contains small surface anomalies and inclusions, with fissures running through the crystals in numerous directions (due to it being a naturally occurring crystal) - these add interesting facets to the object and means that no two crystals will ever be the same, in either looks, the way they react to light sources, or clarity. Images are representative of product.
