Designer Cabochon of Rhodonite Heart
wrapped in 14KT Gold-Filled Wire

 

This is a designer cabochon of soft pink Rhodonite. Looking at the beautiful tones in this piece, it reminds you of a soft pink sunset at evening.

Rhodonite is a rose pink to dark red gemstone with black dendritic inclusions. It is a manganese silicate, and a member of the pyroxenoid group of minerals. The manganese is often partly replaced by iron, magnesium, calcium, and sometimes zinc, occasionally in large quantities. It’s a deep rose pink with bits of black (manganese) patterns. Rhodonite is named after the Greek word ‘rhodon’ which means rose or pink.

This stone is hand cut by me and I then wrapped it in beautiful, warm 14KT gold-filled wire. It is displayed on a 14KT gold-filled chain. It is approximately 44.5 carats in weight and is approximately 1 ½ inches in length from the top of the bail to the bottom of the stone. It is about 1 inch in width at the widest point.
