Zoisite is a natural mineral that is a complex silicate with the inclusion of calcium and aluminium. The auxiliary impurity elements affect the color of the stone. The inclusion of iron gives it a green and olive shades. Due to the impurity of vanadia crystals take on a blue color, a combination of chromium vanadia and give them a greenish-blue hue. Zoisite has a glass matte or gloss depending on the degree of transparency, is of medium hardness and increased brittleness, which adversely affects the processing of stone. It is not soluble in acids, and in the process of melting forms a bubbly white mass. Often called "zoisite" mispronounce it calling it euphemistically "zoisite". We must distinguish these two concepts, so zoisite was named after the scientist aristocrat Coisa, which is devoted to the study of stone for a long time. The first mineral was discovered in the early 19th century in the range of zau-Alps Austria-Hungary, and thus got his first name "saualpe".

Traditional healers use the stone for treating the pancreas, spleen and lungs. It relieves inflammation, strengthens the immune system and normalizes metabolism.
