This large pendant was created by Navajo artist Thomas Fransisco.
It features a rosy Rhodochrosite gemstone.
Rhodochrosite has been called a Stone of Love and Balance.
The Inca’s called it "Inca rose" or ‘Rosa del Inca’.
This stone is said to have power to straighten the balance of the body, the spirit, and feelings.
Today rhodochrosite healing is popular in gemstone therapy.
It's marked sterling and signed.
It's 2" tall, plus 3/4" bail, by 1 1/8" wide
weight: 24.5 grams on my scale
I placed a quarter there for scale.
