The stone of love and balance. It also can clear the auric field.
Rhodonite, another pinkish stone, is often confused with rhodochrosite because the base color is similar, but most rhodonite
used for jewelry purposes contains black manganese oxides while rhodochrosite is banded with white.
The pink color of rhodochrosite is caused by the element manganese and it is formed when manganese is dissolved by
ground water and combines with a carbonate material and then drips off the ceiling of caves and crevices deep
underground. It is found in Argentina, Peru, Colorado and Montana, U.S, and Quebec, Canada.
It is commonly found in the form of stalactites and stalagmites in the caves of Argentina. Rhodochrosite (whose name
means rose-colored) often forms pink and white bands. It is often carved into figurines or boxes while the tubular stalactite
formations are often sliced for use in jewelry. Fine gem quality crystals are sometimes cut into gemstones for use in high end
jewelry, but the more common grade is used extensively in silver and gold jewelry.
