Rhodochrosite is a manganese carbonate mineral that usually ranges from pink to red. It has vitreous and pearly luster. Named for the Greek words “rose” and “coloring”. Very popular as a gemstone, for which it is cut into slabs and chen made into cabochons. Extremely rare as a well formed crystal. It is sometimes mistaken for rhodonite, because both minerals are pink.
