This specimen consists of a cut and polished piece of green zoisite which acts as a matrix for at least 2 Ruby crystals. These crystals are extremely difficult to study, as they have been ground flush with the zoisite. Both have a deep red color with a strong hint of violet and are likely opaque, though this, too is nearly impossible to determine. The zoisite matrix is also very dark, as it contains a substantial amount of amphibolite.
