The heart as nature designed it, anatomical details mapped out in exquisite style, rendered in bronze or sterling silver, framing a rhodochrosite stone. Rhodochrosite is a manganese carbonate, making it chemically similar to organic materials such as shell or coral, but the native calcium is replaced by manganese, accounting for its blood-red hues. It is the color of roses, of blushing flesh... In its stone form it is often banded with pale calcite and shimmers hematite. In its rare gem form it is the red of fresh blood. Rhodochrosite is called “The Stone of the Compassionate Heart,” and is said to emit an energy of unconditional love, tenderness, and connection. It is perfectly at home here, embraced by this tree-of-life in the form of a heart.
