Welcome to Pink Saturday!
Last Saturday it was 80 degrees and sunny so my husband and I made the 2 hour drive to my bead suppliers. These are amongst the treasure I came home with.
This is Rhodochrosite.
Rhodochrosite (whose name means rose-colored) is a very attractive mineral with an absolutely one-of-a-kind, beautiful color. The color of a single crystal can just astound the observer with its vivid pink-rose color that seems to be transmitted out of the crystal as if lit from within. Please come back next week to see what I do with these beauties.
Please visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for links to all the Pink lovin' ladies in blogland. I know we are supposed to post a link to a blog we visited for the first time last week, but I am posting the link to LaVoice at Thoughts from Memme's Corner. I love visiting LV a couple times a week, I think it would be fun to have afternoon tea with her. Last week she had something nasty happen to her but she is such a classy lady, she rose above it and set an example for the rest of us. Thank you LV.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a Happy Pink Saturday.
