Rhodochrosite is a manganese carbonate mineral with a highly desired pink color. While most well known for being a manganese mineral, rhodochrosite has a variable composition and is commonly found with iron, calcium, and magnesium. This mineral typically occurs in cavities and fractures in sedimentary and metamorphic rock.
I love how this piece is polished and smooth to the touch. I think most would agree that this specimen is a must have for any geologist or crystal collector. The bands and rich pink hue on this piece are mesmerizing to say the least! The speckled center makes this piece especially lively. This rhodochrosite specimen is perfect for adding a little pop of color and fun to any room.
Rhodochrosite is believed to have effects on the heart chakra, with qualities such as boosting confidence, warmth, and most importantly unconditional love. The manganese within the mineral is also a trace element our brains need in order to function properly.
