This Genuine Rhodochrosite is:
Quantity: One pair (two beads)
Shape: Smooth curved rectangle (drilled lengthwise)
Size: 20x12mm (+/- 1mm)
Quality: I’m going to call this Rhodochrosite an AA grade. They are incredible stones. The detailing is amazing, the cut is lovely, and the color is rich & varied. These are lovely, natural, untreated Rhodochrosite, something that has been more & more difficult to come by these days with so much dyed material available. Some of these stones will have seen a touch of abuse at the very tips, although it is not visible at normal range. The price reflects the amount of abuse & the extravagance of detail in each pair. These were hand matched and although they are not side-by-side cuts of the same stone (what I consider to be perfect, true pairs) they have been selected based on size, color & pattern of detail. There are minor variations in size at times (some pairs may differ slightly), but regardless, I get excited anytime I find rhodochrosite that looks this beautiful! When it’s good, it’s very, very good…
