Rhodochrosite (properly, rhodocrocite) is a bead prized for it's lovely strawberry hues, with opaque matrix stone highlights from creamy white to soft grey and black. The rhodochrosite for these beads was sourced in Argentina, and they are a nice deep pink. This is an expensive and uncommon stone, with a heavier feel than most beads of similar size. The "ribbons" crucifix is a weighty piece, as is the rosary center, so this rosary has a substantial quality and a beautiful drape. Only one rosary available. Lovely for ladies!
