Rhodochrosite's name refers to the Greek word for "rose-red." It has also been called "Inca-rose," due to its deposits in Argentina. Rhodochrosite is commonly believed to welcome change, helping the wearer to open their arms and embrace it. Gemstone beads display a natural color variance--rhodochrosite ranges from a deep rosy-red to a light pink with grey, cream and black inclusions.
