Rhodochrosite, Inca Rose Stone and Raspberry Spar, is a rare manganese carbonate mineral that is only found in a few locations worldwide. Its name derives from the Greek words rhodon meaning ‘rose’ and chroma meaning ‘colour.’
This mineral is one of the few in the mineral kingdom that produces rhombohedral crystals. These specimens can cost £10,000+. One of the few locations that produce near perfect Rhodochrosite crystals is the Sweet Home Mine in Alma, Colorado.
