This small hand specimen consists of a rough, shapeless chunk of massive zoisite in which are embedded several broken Ruby crystals. These crystals are broken level with the zoisite matrix, so their forms are impossible to study. All have the dark red coloration with a hint of violet that is standard for Rubies from this locality, and a dull, pearly-to-waxy luster where applicable. The zoisite matrix has the classic moderate green color and contiains many tiny, broken amphibolite crystals which comprise the black flecks within.
