This is a 5.5" wide, cut/polished section of rhodonite (manganese carbonate) mined in northern British Columbia, Canada. One side has been left rough, while the other side has been polished to a mirror-finish, making for a beautiful, decorative piece. Comes with an acrylic 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.
