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.
Items ordered were fantastic but, I received a note with the order about shipping. Am I being charged more for shipping? I realize the items were shipped from Thailand but if there are extra shipping charges please inform me beforehand.

My wife and I love Gemselect. We have bought Spinels, and Kyanite. The stones arrived sooner than expected and matched perfectly the description. A little back ground , My wife is a G.I.A/G.G. with 15yrs plus in the industry. She has worked at Cartier's (Madrid Spain) along with 3 highend retail stores in So. California. She was blown away by the prices when I found this great company. Highly Recommend. Sincerely, Mr. Richard...
I'm very pleased with the stone I received from Gem Select. The price is right, it came very quickly, and was packaged well. It even came in a small bag that listed the weight, quality etc. My only complaint is the inefficient way I had to find the specific bank for my credit card. Kind of old-school, but what the heck. The stone is beautiful and the website super easy to navigate. I recommend this company,
