Rhodochrosite - The Mineral And Gemstone Kingdom

Rhodochrosite is a manganese carbonate mineral with chemical composition MnCO3. In its (rare) pure form, it is typically a rose-red color, but impure specimens can be shades of pink to pale brown. It streaks white, and its Mohs hardness varies between 3.5 and 4. Its specific gravity is between 3.5 and 3.7. It crystallizes in the trigonal system, and cleaves with rhombohedral carbonate cleavage in three directions.

People leave a giant air purifier, which its inventor calls a “super tree”, in Lima's district of Jesus Maria November 24, 2014. In Peru's notoriously polluted capital Lima, local inventor Jorge Gutierrez, a retired naval engineer, is deploying the giant air purifiers that double as billboards to suck up carbon dioxide and dangerous levels of smog.

A replica model of a Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 in Dubai, UAE. This is the world's most expensive model car, made from carbon fibre and covered in a thin layer of pure gold. The 1:8 scale replica Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4, designed by German engineer Robert Gülpen, is available to buy for £200,000. But amazingly this model – currently on display at the Lamborghini showroom in Dubai – is just a prototype for a solid gold model, which will go up for auction in 2014 with a price tag of £4.6 million.
