2.2" Rhodonite Sphere - Madagascar
This is a beautiful, 2.2" wide, polished sphere of rhodonite from Ampanihy, Madagascar. The black veins criss-crossing the stone are manganese oxide. It comes with a wooden display stand.
Rhodonite is well known among collectors for its beautiful pink and red color. The red variety can be so deep red that it rivals the color of Ruby. Rhodonite often has black manganese oxide veins running through a specimen, giving it the distinct appearance of pink with black crisscrossing lines and flower-like formations throughout.
