Rhodochrosite Teardrop Cabochon

The beautiful rhodochrosite cabochon shown here is 25mm long. It is available to be handcrafted into a custom made ring or pendant for you.

The pink color of rhodochrosite is caused by the element manganese, and it is formed when manganese is dissolved by ground water and combines with a carbonate material and then drips off the ceiling of caves and crevices deep underground. It can be found in Argentina; Peru; Colorado and Montana, USA; and Quebec, Canada. It is commonly found in the form of stalactites and stalagmites in the caves of Argentina. Rhodochrosite (the word means rose-colored) often forms pink and white bands.
