SEMI-PRECIOUS GEMSTONE; RHODOCHROSITE
Rhodochrosite is a beautiful, rich pink color, with natural banding in the stone, sometimes there will be white, grayish, or black minerals mixed in as well, but this one is pretty pure. This piece is a piece of a slice from a stalagmite.
Handcrafted pendant is wired with sterling silver in a very intricate, elegant style frame mounting that I am calling the "scroll work" frame – one of many newer design styles I am experimenting with. Piece has a slide bail, and is medium to latge size; approx. 2 1/4" long x 1" wide #2008-11
Rhodochrosite is good for memory, balancing, relaxing, accepting.
This piece has an elegant flow and a very feminine "feel" to it.
