This particular form of zoisite is green, oxidising to form black spots, and contains ruby. Both stones connect with the Heart Chakra, but the ruby forms a Heart connection with the Divine, while the Zoisite, with its black inclusions, is powerfully grounding, thereby allowing us to strengthen our spiritual connection while keeping our feet on the ground. It is detoxifying, encourages recovery from illness and heavy stress, allows us to be true to ourselves without conforming to others, and helps to turn destructive behaviour patterns into a constructive lifestyle.
Ruby zoisite can be used in treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and ME. It also supports fertility in both sexes, and is purported to stimulate psychic abilities.
