An unusually large rhodonite pendant featuring a beautifully polished gemstone with a rich scarlet colour and inclusions of manganese oxide. This distinctive black mineral can often be found in rhodonite and is what makes each gemstone so unique.
As with all of the stones in our collection, this cabochon was carefully chosen by one of our team prior to it being crafted into a ladies pendant. The setting is fine sterling silver and despite its size, it has a relatively slim design.
All silver tarnishes if left exposed to the atmosphere for any length of time but it can be minimised if the metal is protected. Our ladies pendants come complete with their own gift pouch so this would be an ideal place to store this rhodonite pendant whenever it's not being worn. Tarnish is a chemical reaction that's caused by exposure to pollutants in the atmosphere so by keeping the pouch closed, the sterling silver setting will remain bright and tarnish free.
