Rhodonite Pink Opaque Gemstone
Pretty rhodonite pendant featuring a deep pink coloured gemstone mounted in a hand-made sterling silver setting.
Rhodonite is often confused for another pinkish red coloured stone called rhodochrosite but visually the two minerals are quite different. The only thing they really have in common is that the names of both stones stems from the Greek word "rhodon" meaning rose in reference to their colour. Rhodonite is well known for its black coloured inclusions of manganese oxide which can vary from a single dot to the point where is covers the pink colour of the stone almost completely.
To help minimse any build-up of tarnish on sterling silver and to protect gemstones from unwanted marks and scratches, we recommend items of jewellery be covered with a soft cloth whilst being stored away. This ladies rhodonite pendant comes in a protective gift pouch which is ideal for this purpose.
