    We jokingly refer to this as strawberry and cream stone. I think it is fairly obvious why Rhodochrosite came to the attention of jewellers. Interestingly, Rhodochrosite often occurs close to silver bearing ores and some of the best examples come from silver mines, although it is actually a Manganese mineral (I hope you are enjoying the mineralogy lesson). Take a close look at the pictures and you'll see why we chose this piece for the box. As well as the extravagant patterning, notice the green...

Take a close look at the pictures and you'll see why we chose this piece for the box. As well as the extravagant patterning, notice the green inclusions? I think this is either a green pyrite or fluorite, but I'm 99% certain its Green Pyrite because of the crystal structure. Close up it all looks like a map of some strange and exotic planet. 16cm x 11cm x 4cm. A unique and highly collectable box of fine quality.
