Rhodochrosite Loose Gemstone

Rhodochrosite (MnCO1 + Fe. Ca) is its own gemstone  family.  It can occur in Pale Pink, Rose Red, Deep Pink, Orangish Red, Yellowish, Gray, Tan and Brown. Rhodochrosite is very rare in faceted form. The specimens are in such demand among mineral collectors it’s very difficult and can be quite expensive to acquire faceted, gem quality Rhodochrosite. As part of this, clean stones are very scarce and expensive.

The most valuable is the Colorado pink Rhodochrosite, anything over 1ctw is considered very large. Argentinean material is translucent at best and much less costly, but few gems are in the marketplace. Recently, Mexican gem material resembles Colorado material but is generally quite small. Peruvian stones resemble those from Colorado, but not as vivid and clean. Massive material from Argentina occurs in large pieces and has been carved, cut into beads, cabochons & useful objects. South African Rhodochrosite is rich rose red in color and extremely rare in facet cut crystals. Again, the Colorado pink gems are the loveliest of al & the most valuable of all the Rhodochrosite material. We are offering Colorado material at IGYSL Fine Jewelry.  

Rhodochrosite balances and enhances love on all levels. It allows fuller love to enter one's life, in part by calming excessive passions. It balances the mental and emotional processes. It is also said to be a stone of freedom because of this helping to balance inner conflicts. This can bring a deep sense of happiness and relief from ongoing stress.
