Rhodochrosite – polished slices
Lovely hot pink polished slices of Rhodochrosite.
Polished Rhodochrosite slices
Gorgeous polished slices of Rhodochrosite, a lovely pink banded mineral. These are sometimes known as 'bacon rock' and you can see why...
These slices are unfortunately seconds, and may have voids on their face, or a less polished face than some of our nicer pieces. They have a flat back and a domed face, like cabochons.
These are from Argentina, and have then been cut and polished here in the UK.
You may have seen perfectly round slices of Rhodochrosite in the past - these are slices cut from Stalactites and do not tend to be banded. These pieces are not from stalactite formations and are layered.
They make a great display object but could be cut into cabochons if you decide. We don't currently supply slice stands but it ought to be relatively easy to find some online.
Frequently asked questions and delivery information
How do we grade stones?
There is no overall universal grading system for the majority of our products. As such, the grades we use are internal only. They simply refer to higher and lower qualities, but they may be entirely different grades to other websites. C grade pieces are of lower quality than B grade, which is lower than A grade.
How does our ordering and delivery process work?
You place an order via the website. When it’s been picked and packed, your order will be marked as completed and dropped off at our local post office. We have an account with the post office called a “Drop and Go” account, which allows the post office staff to process our parcels when they have free time, rather than me queuing up and delaying everyone else.
I get tracking information etc online when this has been completed. I typically do not send tracking information to customers unless they request it – but if you’ve requested tracked postage, it has been sent tracked! If you have any worries or concerns about your parcel being delayed please feel free to get in touch and I’ll send the tracking info over! We also get delivery confirmations for parcels over 25MM thick by default.
How do international orders work?
After Brexit, with the UK leaving the European Union, certain things have changed with regards to international orders. European Union customers will now likely be liable to pay the same amount of import VAT as any other international customers. You will be responsible for any customs and import fees.
I’d like to return my order for a refund.
No problem at all – just get in touch and we’ll arrange it. You can read our full returns policy here.
What payment methods do you accept?
I can accept Paypal, Stripe, cheque, and direct bank transfers. Paypal and Stripe will both allow you to pay with credit and debit cards.
