Recently, in the jewelry-making space, there was a rise in popularity for Rosarita stones. Its striking red color is one of its main characteristics.
WHAT IS ROSARITA STONE?
Rosarita is a by-product of gold smelting. Smelting gold is the process of extracting gold from an ore it is combined with. Essentially, when an ore that is gold-bearing gets heated to high temperatures, gold sinks down to the bottom and the non-metals solidify into boulders of red and orange. Red being Rosarita.
ROSARITA STONE CHARACTERISTICS
Rosarita has an amazing, eco-friendly alternative to coral because of its plentiful positive attributes and distinctive color. Rosarita shows an intense, rich red, along with occasional striking gold streaks - perfect for using it for any artisan silver or gold design. Rosarita will occasionally resemble glass with its high-shine glossy finish, beautifully reflecting the light.
