Rhodochrosite · Silver Pendant


A lovely chunky piece of Rhodochrosite from Northern Argentina. This teardrop piece has beautiful varying shades of pink and quartz formations inside, polished to a high-shine. On it's back you can see forms of Pyrite (Fool's Gold) which is often found with Rhodochrosite. Known as 'Inca Rose', Rhodochrosite was thought to represent the purity of the Andean Women.

This metalwork technique dates back thousands of years to pre-Incan artisans. Made using only pliers to shape the Silver, with no soldering or heat.
