Ruby Kyanite is a naturally occurring combination of red Ruby and blue Kyanite. It was found in South India. Ruby is a red variety of corundum, an aluminum oxide with a hexagonal crystal system and a hardness of 9. Blue Kyanite is an aluminum-silicate mineral with a triclinic crystal system and a hardness varying from 4.5 to 7, depending on the axis. Ruby Kyanite is predominantly Kyanite, and is a rather dark blue, containing somewhat muted red spots of Ruby.
