Regal Large Pink Rhodochrosite Gemstone Necklace
A rhodochrosite gemstone necklace with elegant sterling silver wire work. The high quality pink gemstone characteristic wavy bands of color variation. The stone is set and accented with intricate weaves, swirls, and spirals of sterling silver wire. The pendant is hung on a silver-plated copper chain in your choice of length from 16" to 22" and is packaged in a hand-stamped gift box. This is a powerful and beautiful amulet for the woman who loves jewelry that is a unique as she is.
The name "rhodochrosite" means "rose-colored", and the stone's identifying pink color is caused by the element manganese. It often shows pink and white bands, due to varying concentrations of managese and carbonates in the slowly dripping solution that forms the stone (just like stalagtites and stalagmites!) Rhodochrosite is even found in the form of stalactites and stalagmites in the caves of Argentina. Metaphysically, rhodochrosite is thought to be a very spiritual stone and to bring a better understanding of one's inner self. It is also associated with kindness and compassion. This is the perfect magical accessory to bring extra clarity and warmth to your life.
CHAIN: The pendant is photographed on a silver-plated copper snake chain, available in lengths of 16 or 20 inches.The silver plating on the chain will eventually wear off, but its a great affordable option. I also have a variety of styles of sterling silver chains available to enhance your pendant, you can see photos in the Chain Section.
SIZE: 2 1/4" x 1 1/4. Please also see the last photo for a size reference.
CLEANING: Silver will naturally darken, or tarnish, due to reactions with sulfides in the air. Each piece of Kosmic Krystals' silver jewelry comes with a non-tarnish strip and bag that prevents absorbing and trapping the sulfides and other pollutants in the air. If kept in a sealed bag or jewelry box with your silver jewelry the strip will prevent tarnishing for approximately 6 months. Rhodochrosite is a softer, porous stone which should not be cleaned using any harsh silver or gemstones cleaners. Some tarnish can be removed with a polishing cloth, but deeper areas cannot be reached. However, this natural patina can give the piece an interesting antiqued look. Any dirt and debris can be easily removed with a gentle toothbrush and warm soapy water.
