Rhodochrosite ( from Greek: “rose-coloured”) is a manganese carbonate mineral. Its chemical composition is MnCO3. In its purest form it is a transparent rose red, but this is fairly rare. It can also be formed in stalactites. This form can be sliced revealing circular layers of rose and pink to milky white. These lighter colors are formed when the manganese is replaced by calcium, manganese or zinc. The depth of color from red to pink depends on the amount of substitution
Rhodochrosite is normally a pale pink stone with white stripes. It was “discovered” in Argentina just before World War II, but was used by the Incas as early as the thirteenth century! This gemstone, also known as the stone of “love and balance,” can balance emotions, attract comfort, and release past psychological issues. Rhodochrosite is also said to draw love to the person that wears it! Rhodochrosite occurs as a hydrothermal vein mineral along with other manganese minerals in low temperature ore deposits as in the silver mines of Romania where it was first found. Banded rhodochrosite is mined in Capillitas, Argentina. Catamarca, Argentina has an old Incan silver mine that has produced fine stalactitic examples of rhodochrosite that are unique and very attractive. Cut cross-sections reveal concentric bands of light and dark rose colored layers.
