This lovely tear drop shaped rhodochrosite stone is a pretty pink with mattrix of white and gray running in a semi-circle through it. Within the circle shape is beautiful crystal in pink and white which sparkles when it catches the light. This is among my favorite rhodochrosites ever! I have set this in sterling silver....a fancy gallery bezel setting, on a sterling platform with a wide, half round sterling band which has been pounded to catch the light. The entire setting was then oxidized black and then polished so that black stays in the low areas and the rest of the silver shines brightly.
The stone measures just under 20mm (0.08") from point to bottom and 11mm (0.45") wide at the widest part of the base. The band is 4mm (0.2") wide.
This is a one of a kind ring. The ring pictured is the one you will receive. It is a size 7 US. In the third image, it is the ring on the left.
