Offered for sale is a beautifully patterned and colored RHODOCHROSITE crystal cabochon from the Capillitas Mine in northeastern Argentina, which has been mined since the time of the Incas. This nicely banded piece is a slice from a stalactite that has been cut and polished to show off the growth rings to best advantage. It is even lightly polished on the back to bring out the gemmy quality of the rose bands, as shown in photo #2. RHODOCHROSITE's name actually means rose colored. Please note that the item in the pictures is the exact item which you will be purchasing.
From a metaphysical perspective, RHODCHROSITE is one of the best stones for the Heart chakra, emanating loving energy and aiding relationships. It is most useful for self-love, helping with deep emotional healing and effectively bringing balance to one's life. It has a gentle, loving energy but is very powerful in its results. This cabochon is ready for being made into a beautiful piece of jewelry, or makes a handy pocket stone, which is the way I generally use them. A pouch will be included for this purpose.
