Rhodochrosite

To a rock hound, this is a lovely little specimen.  To a jewelry buff, its a delightful piece to add to one's collection.  Why,because it has a lovely pale, slightly pinkish streak,  and can be translucent with a vitreous to pearly luster. The name is derived from the Greek, rhodochrosis (pink coloured).  Native Americans used to offer the stone as a token of love, and many want it for its supposed healing properties  Good samples are used as semiprecious gems, faceted, or cut as a cabochon.  In some cultures in was considered a holy stone.




Guess what we have in the Designer Showcase. * Elemental has put in her showcase a lovely earring and pendant set,(silver & rhodochrosite), she calls Persephone.
Silver until the 18th century was considered almost as valuable as gold. Silver increases the power of a stone. symbol of the moon, it can pacify an unsettled energy, and works well on all chakras.  The time to act is now, this lovely set of jewelry is selling for $95 while it is in the Designer Showcase.
