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.
