About These Items

One automatically thinks of the red and pink variety when one mentions Rhodochrosite, but it also comes in brown. Rhodochrosite is the state rock of Colorado, where I lived for 17 years and try to visit every year or two, and although some areas have pink rock cliffs, mostly, Colorado is very brown, especially in the east. This brown version of the stone reminds me of hard caramel candies…it has that translucent quality.

Necklace Length: 15.6″
Pendant Length: 2″
Stones Used: Brown Rootbeer Rhodochrosite
Silver Bead and Finding Ethnicity: Thai and Balinese

For those who are interested in Astrological significances of stones, Rhodochrosite corresponds with with Leo and Scorpio, and Peridot corresponds with Libra and the month of August.
