Fuchsite is a variation of Muscovite, with a higher than average level of Chromium creating a distinctive green apple colour.
Fuchsite is very soft, around 2.5 on the Mohs scale – it is therefore mainly used as a mineral specimen.
In some cases, Corundum/Ruby crystals are found occurring within Fuchsite, often with Kyanite banding. This material tends to be known as ‘Ruby in Fuchsite’.
