This is a true rarity. I searched for years for this particular cut in Rhodochrosite, but have decided to part with this gem now, mostly because of its smaller size. The Rhodochrosite has been expertly sandwiched between a strong black Basinite backing and a clear protective Quartz cap. This makes the Rhodochrosite much more durable and fine to wear on a regular basis. The cab measures 33x22x8mm, so while its on the smaller size, the quality is unbeatable. Love it!
