This Rhodochrosite bracelet has small round beads with half moon beads. Quite a nice look. The Incas called this gemstone the "Inca Rose." It certainly is a beautiful color.
Our book on gemstones says this stone can help the digestive system. Haven't seen the empirical evidence on that yet. The lighter colored Rhodochrosite seems to be more expensive. We like the darker shade also. Can't beat $9.95!
