Transparent faceted rhodochrosite in a lovely shade of strawberry red.
Rhodochrosite is commonly seen as opaque stones or carvings in
striated pinks with a strong resemblance to bacon (yum!), therefore
transparent rhodochrosite is quite rare. This very unusual oval measures
13.25 x 10.25mm and weighs 7.46 carats!
Stones that make you say WOW!
