Noda village


Localized processing of rose pyroxene (scientific name: rhodonite) into ornaments is nicknamed "Marine Rose" in the local community. At present, in Japan, manganese mines remain only in the Noda Tamagawa, and manganese ore, a Japanese pyroxene from Japan, is a precious stone that can only be obtained here. This stone has been sleeping for a long time in the earth for about 200 million years, and its patrons are increasing with its soft pink color and subtle falm. Because all of the manufacturing process is hand-made and pays close attention, its beautiful vermilion soft color and gloss have a warm taste unique to natural stone and are well received.

History / History

It has been reported that the development of mines has been started since the ore deposit was discovered around 1883. With more than 200 employees working at its peak, it was the first and second largest manganese mine in the country. As the mining rights continue to change over time, Hokusei Mining Co., Ltd. has finally taken over and developed it. As part of that, we developed the by-product Marine Rose product and opened it as a tunnel in 1987. Inside the mine, the working conditions of the time when it prospered as a manganese mine is reproduced with a model doll etc. In addition to the ore mined in this mine, we also collect from other countries in the world and visit the display corner of gem minerals etc. I can do it.
