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 am a very satisfied customer. You have a very good website with clear and simple information. I bought a gemstone to the test, and got exactly what you promised. Result: I have now bought two more and will definitely be back ...
My first experience with your company. Brilliant. Received the gem a whole day earlier than I expected, in perfect condition. Extremely happy with the stone. Confirmed size, shape, weight and clarity were as advertised, with my Jeweller. I love the colour. Thanks. I will definitely shop with you again.
