Rhodonite Meaning and Healing Properties

Introduction to Rhodonite

The English name of rhodonite comes from the Greek word rhodon, which means rose. The rhodonite crystals produced there are in the shape of a table with rounded edges, but in fact most of the rhodonite crystals are massive without crystals. The polished high-quality rhodonite slices resemble the cross-section of a familiar melon, and most of the others are salmon red with brown or black vein-like impurities. The pink color usually connects us with potential creative energy, while the brown-black veining allows us to make these high-level forces useful. The vast majority of rhodonite is produced in metamorphic rocks.
