Rhodochrosite is extremely rare mineral found in caves of Argentina, Peru, Colorado & Montana. The pink color is caused by manganese and it’s formed when the manganese is dissolved by ground water, mixes with a carbonate material, and drips off the ceiling of caves deep underground.
This stunning stalactite cross section pendant is in a sterling silver spectacle setting, so front and back of the gorgeous stone are exposed. The necklace is 19” long sterling silver & can be worn shorter.
