A lovely carved Rhodonite puffy heart pendant. It is a dusty rose pink or mauve gemstone with black manganese oxide dendrite veins running through it, creating interesting formations and providing a nice contrast. The name Rhodonite is derived from the term rhodos, which is Greek for "Rose colored". The heart pendant has a silver bail on the top.
Size: 1½ inches
