Ruby Zoisite, also known as Anyolite, is a powerful combination of two minerals that was first discovered in Tanzania. In 1949 near the foot of the Kilimanjaro mountains in the Longido mining district, Tom Belvins and a secondary gem prospector first discovered this new vein. Tom had uncovered one of the largest Ruby deposits in the world with Zoisite encasing this red gem. Its secondary name Anyolite is derived from the Masai word meaning green and its only known locality is its original mine in Tanzania.
