PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

Only A Few Small ones made! Rhodonite is a Manganese inosilicate, SiO₃ and member of the pyroxenoid group of minerals, crystallizing in the triclinic system. It commonly occurs as cleavable to compact masses with a rose-red colour. This is a new deposit of material being mined in Zimbabwe and polished in the region! Very rare and beautiful rich pink to deep red colour! The Rhodonite occurs with black Chromite and has a high weight to size ratio. The pink colour is variable from a dusky pink to semi gemmy which is exceptionally rare. This is an extremely hard stone, and every piece is polished to perfection. Price is grade dependent. Items are as shown.

General Information - The name rhodonite comes from rhodos, the Greek word for rose, referring to the stone's distinct pink or rose red colour. Banded rhodonite became a very popular ornamental stone during the 1930s, after the discovery of the material in Argentina – this regional material is sometimes called Inca Rose.
