Rhodochrosite Extract

Rhodochrosite is a manganese carbonate mineral that ranges in color from light pink to bright red.  It was first discovered in the 13th century, by the Incas, who believed the stone to be a physical manifestation of the blood of their gods. Its name comes from the Greek words rhodon (“rose”) and chrōma (“color”).

The stones used to create Rhodo’Lîte™ ² liquid stone extract are sourced in Argentina.
