Beautiful Pendant of Ruby in Zoisite
in 14KT Gold-Filled Wire 

 

This pendant displays a nice movement of the ruby within the zoisite.  It has a very feminine feel to the pendant. The 14KT Gold-Filled wire sets it off nicely.

Ruby in zoisite is the natural combination of both ruby and zoisite crystals in a single specimen. It is also known as 'anyolite', a name derived from the Masai word for 'green' (anyoli). Other name variations include "ruby-in-zoisite" and "Tanganyika artstone". Ruby-zoisite was discovered at the Longido mining district in northeast Tanzania by Tom Blevins, an English prospector. To this day, Tanzania remains the only source for ruby-zoisite.

This stone is hand cut by me and I then wrapped in 14KT Gold-Filled wire.  It is displayed on a 14KT Gold-Filled chain.
It is approximately 53.5 carats in weight and 2 ¾ inches in length from the top of the bail to the bottom of the stone. It is about 1 inch in width at the widest point.
