PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

Rhodonite, a member of the pyroxenoid group of minerals, is a captivating manganese inosilicate, with a chemical composition of SiO₃. Its crystalline structure follows the triclinic system. Typically, Rhodonite is found in cleavable to compact masses and is characterized by its stunning rose-red colour. Presenting a new deposit of Rhodonite, recently unearthed in Zimbabwe and expertly polished in the same region. This material boasts a remarkably rare and enchanting rich pink to deep red hue. It often occurs alongside black Chromite and possesses an impressive weight-to-size ratio. The pink coloration can vary from a dusky pink to semi-gemmy, an exceptionally rare feature. Rhodonite is an exceptionally hard stone, and each piece is meticulously polished to bring out its natural beauty. Pricing varies according to the grade, and the items are showcased as displayed. Intriguingly, the name Rhodonite finds its origin in the Greek word "rhodos," which means "rose," a fitting reference to the stone's distinctive pink or rose-red colour. The discovery of banded Rhodonite in Argentina during the 1930s catapulted it into popularity as an ornamental stone, sometimes referred to as "Inca Rose" in reference to the regional material. Price is grade dependant. Items are as shown.
