Rhodochrosite Designer Pendant

red-line.gif


Rhodochrosite derives its pink color from manganese. This designer cabochon shows a lot of the sought-after deep pink and is a truly beautiful stone. I've wrapped it in six strands of sterling silver wire and added my signature topper. Enjoy!

Treat someone special to this one-of-a-kind gift or buy it for yourself.

This pendant measures 1 7/8" from top of bail and is 3/4" wide.

Note: Rhodochrosite is a manganese carbonate mineral. In its pure form, it is a rose-red color, but impure specimens can be shades of pink to pale brown with streaks of white as in this stone mixed with the iron carbonate mineral siderite. Its Mohs hardness varies between 3.5 and 4. Rhodochrosite occurs in veins associated with manganese, copper, silver and lead. It is also called raspberry spar and is a cousin of calcite, but where calcite has calcium, rhodochrosite has manganese.

Enjoy this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
