About The Stone
The vivid color range of Rhodochrosite has made it famous and one of the most sought after stones for jewelry. Rhodochrosite can appear in colors from light pink, to deep raspberry, to bright red. Its distinguishing trait is the stone's thick banding pattern of its colors plus bands of white and tan, which gives the stone its dimensional quality.
Rhodochrosite is one of the rarest stones in the world. It can only be found in a few locations across the globe, including the United States where it's recognized as Colorado's state mineral for its rich deposits there.
Note, Rhodochrosite is a softer stone and should be cared for with a clean polishing cloth or plain soapy water. Do not put it in ultrasonic cleaners or use any harsh cleaning chemicals.
Rhodochrosite is known for passion, courage and fortitude.
