Rhodochrosite Beads

Rhodochrostie beads with a good quality have high contrast between pink and white sections making the so-called `bacon strip` pattern. Pieces cut from stalactite formations often have concentric rings or `eyes`. Named from the Greek word, rhodokhros, `of rosy color`, rhodocrosite occurs in hydrothermal veins associated with manganese, copper, silver and lead, and sometimes as stalactites in caves. Major sources are Argentina, Mexico, South Africa and the USA.
