These mirror image cabs were hand cut by me in my home shop in Florida, USA. They are bright pink translucent rhodochrosite with bands of lighter pink and grey. They are suitable for any jewelry application, but because rhodochrosite is a rather soft stone (Mohs 2.5) it is best used in pendants, earrings or brooches, or pieces which will not get rough treatment, or for collecting. Rhodochrosite is a powerful stone for emotional healing. It helps you gently revisit painful childhood memories, heal the past, and reclaim the parts of yourself that you may have suppressed or disowned for emotional survival. It is also a stone of joy and nurturing, helping you access the freedom and magic of a child when they feel safe and loved.
Please "convo" me if you would like me to include a glue-on bail with your cabochon order to allow you to easily transform this cabochon into a pendant. Just attach the bail with a good epoxy and add a chain.....voila!
