I'm a bit late with the birthstone for August which is Peridot and this isn't it but I loved the beauty of it and the way it was photographed.
It's Rhodochrosite, only 3.5 centimetres tall and looks like a pink blossom.
It's from the Wolf Mine, Betzdorf, Seigerland, Germany and was photographed by Wimon Manorotkul.

Looks like Hyacinth Bucket's hat.

That is SO much prettier than peridot.

And it's so small Jayne. 3.5cm is tiny to show so much. It's on my want list.

Bugger Fleetwood, you've rooned the ambience.

River, I love the green of peridot but I have it set in silver and it doesn't enhance it so I think I'll have the ring gold plated. I wouldn't knock this back though.
