Rhodochrosite gemstone pendant crafted by hand by one of a small team of skilled artisans with whom Stone Mania have been working for almost twenty years. This highly polished pinkish red coloured stone is very slightly translucent and features distinctive markings which make it a relatively easy mineral to identify.
The reason for this ladies rhodochrosite pendant being added to our Bargain Basement is because on one side of the sterling silver setting there is a minor firescale mark but to see, you'll have to look very closely. Firescale marks are relatively common in sterling silver and have the appearance of a tea stain. Depending on the angle at which the silver setting is viewed, the mark can look slightly more or less prominent. It certainly doesn't spoil this rhodochrosite pendant but should you not been entirely satisfied with your purchase, it may as with any item that you purchase from Stone Mania, be returned for a full refund (T&C's apply).
It's worth noting that rhodochrosite is a relatively soft stone which grades 3½ to 4 on Mohs scale of mineral hardness. Keeping gemstone jewellery covered with a soft cloth whenever it's not being worn will not only protect stones from becoming damaged but will also dramatically reduce the build up of tarnish on the sterling silver.
