spread throughout the fuchsite base. Ruby in Fuchsite is a popular
stone because it has great color contrast.
The two components of Ruby in Fuchsite are different hardnesses,
but if it is handled gently and slowly, it will cut a stunning stone.
The green fuchsite, also known as chromium muscovite or chrome mica,
can contain mica sparkles. Of course, the red crystals are ruby and
often display chatoyoance. Blue kyanite is commonly found in the mix.
Ruby in Fuchsite is best polished with diamond. If the fuchsite doesn't
provide a good enough polish, a very quick buff with green rouge (Zam)
will bring up a better polish. Mohs hardness is approximately 9 for
the ruby and 2.5 for the fuchsite.
