This Matching Cabochon Set of banded Rhodochrosite is quite beautiful. The pattern running through the stone looks like lace. These cabochons are a gorgeous deep pink with the lighter pink banding running through the stone. The pink colour of Rhodochrosite is caused by the element manganese and it is formed when manganese is dissolved by ground water and combines with a carbonate material and then drips off the ceiling of caves and crevices deep underground.
All 3 cabochons are surrounded by beautiful pearlised baby pink seed beads using Peyote stitch. The outer layers of beadwork are in galvanized ‘blush’ coloured seed beads. Cabochons are connected with Czech fire polished crystals and has a small tassel with crystals and seed beads. The beaded cabochons are backed with cream coloured ultrasuede.
Cabs are suspended on a beautiful beaded seed bead triangle shaped rope with silver plated rope ends and a silver plated heart shapes toggle clasp.
The beaded rope measures 52 cms (approx 20 inches), the pendant measures 18cms (7 inches) from top of bail to end of tassel.
These stones were purchased from Joyce & Jimmy Vacek from their Etsy store 49erMinerals https://www.etsy.com/shop/49erMinerals
