Hand Crafted Ladies Pendants
Pretty rhodonite gemstone pendant crafted in a hand-made sterling silver setting. The distinctive black markings often present in the mineral rhodonite are inclusions of manganese dioxide and the amount present can vary from the tiniest dot to the point where almost the entire gemstone is black. Rhodonite which was first discovered in the 17th century is a popular lapidary material that grades 5½ to 6½ on Mohs scale of mineral hardness so it's relatively easy to work with and except for the very finest grade crystals, is usually cut as a cabochon.
A comfortably light weight ladies pendant that's ideal to wear on your favourite sterling silver chain. The bale is very slightly larger to accommodate a thicker style of chain if preferred. This hand-crafted rhodonite pendant comes in a colourful gift pouch that's perfect for keeping the stone safe and minimising any build-up of tarnish on the sterling silver.
