Rhodochrosite Jewelry and Rings

The name Rhodochrosite refers to the Greek word meaning "rose red". This stone ranges from opaque to transparent rose red - pink color with white stripes. This pink color is formed when manganese is dissolved by ground water and drips off the ceilings of underground caves to form stalactites.

Rhodochrosite is a birthstone for March.

It is said that wearing Rhodochrosite jewelry helps prevent illness, balances mental processes, and assists in dealing with denial. Others say that this stone emits love energy or healing earth energy to aid in love and balance.
