All About Rhodochrosite


The following information is extracted from The Book of Stones and other sources:

Rhodochrosite is a manganese carbonate with a hardness of 3.5 to 4 on the MOhs scale. Its crystal system is hexagonal (trigonal). Most often, rhodochrosite occurs in massive, granular, botryoidal, nodular or stalactitic habits. The name refers to the Greek word for its rose-red color with most rhodochrosite being in the pink-to-red range. It can, however, also be in yellowish, orange or brown colors. The most important deposit is in Argentina, where rhodochrosite formed in the Incan silver mines after they were abandoned in the thirteenth century. Other deposits have been found in Colorado, particularly in the Sweet Home mine and nearby.

Naisha Ahsian claims rhodochrosite is a powerful heart healer and an ideal stone for nervous system imbalances.

Below are a few of the Rhodochrosite stones I have wrapped.
