This natural Argentinian Rhodochrosite has not been treated to enhance color or clarity in any way.
Imagine dressing up that basic black dress or top with these strikingly gorgeous, deep raspberry-pink or rose-red gemstones known as the 'stone of the compassionate heart'. Found mainly in Argentina, Rhodochrosite occurs as a hydrothermal vein mineral along with other manganese minerals in low temperature ore deposits. Its crystal formation is like a cube, but “squished” to form an equal-sided parallelogram or rhombus shape on its sides. The unusual shape of these beauteous gemstones can make a great conversation piece for the wearer.
