Roserita is a very rare material.
In the early 1940’s Gold Prices spiked. As a result of the new high prices some Prospectors revisited the old gold mine areas in places such as Colorado, California, Alaska, etc.
These crusty codgers would build brick kilns over open pits and super-heat that gold-bearing ore that still litters the sites. The return was small and the practice only lasted about 5 years. The gold would sink to the bottom and the beautiful red gold slag would run off down the mountains, and solidify into boulders of Brilliant Red and Orange, much like Obsidian is formed in a volcanic reaction.
It is very rare, but we are lucky enough to have a nice collection. The material is durable and readily polishes to a beautiful shine. So far we have found no other information on it. We feel very blessed to have such a lovely earth element to work with. Roserita is the only material available in such a true red color. Some pieces have swirls of orange and these are even more rare.
Roserita was named after a beach in Mexico because of the brilliant color.
Beautiful Pillow Shape on Lobster Claw allows you to attach to beads, or chains as shown here. Also very nice on a charm bracelet. Shown here on our Red Onyx 3mm Beads sold separately here.
Red Onyx is related to your Root Chakra. It has the healing meanings that are inherent to any color of Onyx. Onyx is strength-giving, providing support in difficult or confusing times, as well as during times of enormous mental or physical stress.
Agate and onyx are both varieties of layered chalcedony that differ only in the form of the bands: agate has curved bands and onyx has parallel bands. The colors of its bands range from black to almost every color.
