Helps fight the signs of aging, protects against UVA (sun) damage. It also soothes the skin and supports the cells that produce collagen and elastin.
Rhodochrosite is a manganese mineral; it is a rose-red stone, often with alternating pink and white bands. It helps to nourish and heal blemished skin. Rhodochrosite protects against UVA (sun) damage and therefore helps fight the signs of aging. It also soothes the skin and supports the cells that produce collagen and elastin. It is an essential component in the detoxification of superoxide free radicals and is a required trace mineral for all known living organisms. Sometimes it referred to as “Inca Rose” because The Incas believed the mineral was the blood of their former rulers manifested in stone. Rhodochrosite occurs as a hydrothermal vein mineral in low-temperature ore deposits, such as silver mines. Pure specimens in large crystal formations are fairly rare and are only found in a few places around the globe.
