Zoisite is a calcium aluminium hydroxy sorosilicate belonging to the epidote group of minerals, named after the Carniolan naturalist Sigmund Zois von Edelstein (Žiga Zois). Zois realized that this was an unknown mineral when it was brought to him by a mineral dealer, Simon Prešern, in 1797, whou had found it in Saualpe in Carinthia. It was first known as saualpite when described in 1805.

Zoisite occurs as prismatic, orthorhombic crystals or in massive form, being found in metamorphic and pegmatitic rock. Zoisite may be blue to violet, green, brown, pink, yellow, gray, or colourless. It has a vitreous luster and a conchoidal to uneven fracture.

In Tanzania, anyolite is a metamorphic rock composed of green Zoisite with black tschermakite and rubinkristaller. These rubies are not of gemstone quality but still gives the paint a striking contrast to the Green zoisiten and decorative stones. They are called Ruby zoisite (Ruby in Zoisite).

Sources of zoisite include Tanzania (tanzanite), Kenya (anyolite), Norway (thulite), Switzerland, Austria, India, Pakistan, and the U.S. state of Washington.

Zoisite drive away laziness and indifference as it stimulates creativity and development of your abilities and talents. Zoisite is a rock of success, and a stone for those of you who want to develop your intellect and let the thought process support progress in all areas of life.
