From the Greek rhodon, meaning “rose,” because of its usual rosy pink color. Rhodonite is a manganese silicate, often veined with black manganese oxides. Crystalline rhodonite is rare; most often it is found in massive form. It is used in jewelry and as an ornamental stone. Rhodonite is found in Brazil, Canada, Sweden, Russia, and the USA. Metaphysically, rhodonite is a stone for developing one’s self worth and attracting love.
