Rhodochrosite “Heart Chakra Gemstone” is a rare gemstone which is highly sought after by collectors worldwide.
The allure of Rhodochrosite is undeniable, both for its raspberry-pink to rose colour, and for the pulsating electrical energy of love it emits.
Rhodochrosite symbolises selfless love, moving one beyond mere empathy but stirring one to action on others’ behalf.
please note that each pair of earrings are the same size, weight and colour but the markings in each stone will vary as they are natural gems and no two are exactly the same..
Rhodochrosite is a metamorphic rock and is found as a vein and fracture-filling mineral. Even at its most valuble, rhodochrosite is far from flawless. You will see inclusions, even in the best pieces. You will also observe a very distinctive texture with genuine rhodochrosite gems. Imitation/lab created gems or rhodonite (often sold as rhodochrosite) will seem more flawless, smooth and crystal like. Inclusions in your rhodochrosite gemstone means it is genuine and if you are after a natural ‘real’ rhodochrosite any impurity is reassurance that you have the real deal...
Rhodochrosite displays many shades of pink to pale brown colours, with cream/ white/ tan streaks.
