Ruby Zoisite is a creative stone, its energy coming from the red and green colors. In the Hindu chakra system red relates to creativity and sexuality, and green is associated with healing, balancing, and abundance. Zoisite stabilizes energy in our head to allow ideas to surface and so begin to take effect.
Ruby zoisite properties
It’s believed the gemstone releases powerful energy to rouse psychic abilities. And ruby on its own is associated with passion. It can bring out anger and amplify emotion. Zoisite reduces this effect. It’s green cools and stabilizes – reducing overwhelming passion, making it good for everything associated with the heart.
This balance makes the gemstone ideal for healing a broken heart and reducing obsessive feelings about another person. Some say it’s good for fertility, impotence and frigidity because it raises sexual feeling.
Ruby Zoisite jewelry
If you design jewelry, try some to make rings, earrings, and pendants for necklaces. The faceted gemstone always looks expensive, and matching sets in heart-shaped boxes are sure to sell well. Because the gemstone is quote expensive, use it sparingly, and understand that as its natural, every bead or cabochon will be a different combination of color.

These all produce a bright, high-key look. White, yellows, greens and pinks look good, giving a spring-like feel. Colorful seed beads can be used to cover eggs and other objects to give an Easter look. Why not give a loved one a pearl necklace for an Easter present - she will look so good wearing it on Easter Day. Plus, flower bead bracelets and earrings are so easy to make too. Happy Easter!

Diamonds are the rich cousins of graphite, both crystalline forms of pure carbon. The enormous difference in their properties is a result of the way that carbon atoms are bonded together. In graphite, carbon atoms are arranged in sheets that easily slide past each other, making them ideal as lubricants. Diamond crystals, are a tight-fisted network of carbon atoms securely held in four directions, making it the hardest naturally-occurring substance.
However, it is now possible to artificially grow diamonds, the same way they are formed over millions of years. Using high-pressure and high-temperature in crystal growth chambers, the size of a washing machine. Within each chamber, a tiny sliver of natural diamond is bathed in a molten solution of graphite and a metal-based catalyst at approximately 1,500 C. Slowly, carbon precipitates onto the diamond seed crystal. A gem-quality, 2.8-carat rough yellow diamond grows in just under three-and-a-half days. This can then be cut and polished to give a gem larger than 1.5 carats. (One-half carat is equal to 100 mg of diamond ¨C about the size of a kernel of corn.).
To say these cultured stones are not real diamond is false. Chemically they are identical to mined diamonds, but they do have different growth patterns and a lack of inclusions that would draw suspicions to a qualified a jeweler. However, those bits of minerals that are enclosed in a natural diamond as its forms are regarded as flaws; a lack of inclusions is actually a good thing. For a jeweler to tell for sure, De Beers has designed a machine for around $10,000.
Using the naked eye, even a trained jeweler cant detect the difference between good cubic zirconia, genuine or cultured diamonds. And even diamond experts have been fooled between cubic zirconia and a five-million-dollar diamond - concluding that both were fakes! All are fully faceted, cut and polished the same.
