Rhodochrosite Earrings!. Rhodochrosite is exquisite with lots of pinks and a high polish! Set in Sterling Silver.
I acquire the rough material and cut, shape and polish it myself. I design and make the setting (typically in Sterling Silver).
Rhodochrosite has a structure that sometimes exhibits gaps or crevices or “cracks”. This is naturally occurring and is not considered a defect. Sterling silver may be polished with any number of good silver cleaner/polish products. Natural stones are fragile and may break if dropped, heated directly, stepped on, etc. Care should be taken.
Geologically, Rhodochrosite is a manganese carbonate mineral that ranges in color from light pink to bright red. It is found in a small number of locations worldwide where other manganese minerals are usually present. This Rhodochrosite is from Argentina.
Metaphysically: Rhodochrosite is a gorgeous, deep raspberry-pink or rose-red crystal that is also called the Stone of the Compassionate Heart. It is the quintessential gemstone of love and compassion. Rhodochrosite brings true joy to one’s life, heals old wounds and makes it possible to love oneself and others unconditionally.
