Wednesday WOW!

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!
