Rhodochrosite

10 months ago 793 Views

The name rhodochrosite originates from the Greek language meaning “rose-colored.” You can easily recognize it by its white agate-like banding known as the bacon strip affect. This banding is how you can differentiate it from rhodonite, which contains black inclusions. Because these two minerals sound similar, they’re easily confused.
