Rhodonite is a manganese mineral and a member of the Pyroxene group of Silicate minerals, which are rock-forming minerals. The shape of the crystal system is triclinic, with it occurring most often in massive or granular habits but can also crystallise in tabular form, often with rounded edges.
Rhodonite’s name derives from the Greek word meaning ‘rose-red’, and it is usually that colour, though it can also be brownish red.
Rhodonite frequently contains black inclusions of manganese oxide.
It was once mined in the Russia Ural mountains and is now found in Sweden, Australia, India, Madagascar, Mexico, South Africa, Brazil, Canada and the USA.
Rhodonite is said to be able to help one to understand one’s purpose, as revealed by one’s gifts or abilities. If you believe everyone has a skill, gift, or ability then Rhodonite is considered to utilise said such and may help one to value one’s gifts and skills, and to perfect them for the highest good.
Physically Rhodonite is said to be an excellent support for weight loss, detoxification and purification of the physical body. Though not a purifier in itself, it may stimulate and strengthen the organ and glands, allowing them to purify the body more effectively. It also said to may help rid the body of gallstones or kidneys stones and may support the healing of the liver from disease or damage.
Here at London Fossils Crystals I sell a wide range of Tumble Stones
Tumble stones are so called because a number of stones of similar sizes are placed in a barrel which is rotated (tumbled) at a speed and after a time between 3 - 5 weeks the stones are polished from rough to smooth.
