Rhodochrosite is an interesting rose-colored gemstone that was only introduced to the market around 1940. Though it is not particularly hard -- rating only 4 on the Mohs scale -- it has become popular as a decorative material due to its attractive soft color and its intriguing variegated markings.
Transparent red crystals are rare; rhodochrosite is usually found in an aggregate form with alternating light and dark stripes in zigzag bands, somewhat similar in that respect to malachite or agate. The most common colors are light red and pink and it displays a vitreous luster when polished.
I have always been skeptical of ordering fine items online for fear of disappointment. Today, Thursday April 26, I received the blue sapphire which I ordered on Monday, April 23. Not only was I impressed with the rapid delivery of my sapphire, but I was very pleased with the way the stone was packaged and protected. The sapphire itself was far better quality than I had anticipated and it will make a beautiful centerpiece for the ring I'm having made. Thanks so much for the great experience...
Excellent. Items were gorgeous and exactly as pictured. Ordered on Monday, rec'd. Thursday AM !! I liked the website and the details of the items. It was an easy, fast and clean transaction. Admitting here that I have purchased from GemsTV and found that some gems ordered were less than advertised. Now I am happy that I can see an exact picture of the item I am to receive.
