Description
For the Inca, rhodochrosite was the blood of former rulers, turned to stone. The importance of the stone to the Inca leads to its nickname,  Inca Rose (Rosa del Inca).

There are about 200 light coral-colored Andean rhodochrosite beads on this 17 in. strand, hand-cut in a rondelle shape and polished smooth by Peruvian crafts people. They are waxed but are untreated and otherwise unaltered.

Because they are hand-cut, there are variations in the sizes of the beads and the sizes and positions of the holes. They are about 3 mm in diameter and 2-3 mm thick. The holes are about 1 mm in diameter.
