The Rhodonite meaning gets its name from the Greek word rhodon,which means “rose.” This rosy pink stone was first discovered in the Ural Mountains of Russia in the 1790s. A favorite of Russian czars, Rhodonite became a traditional wedding present for royals. Strongly associated with love, the Rhodonite crystal meaning is often referred to as a “rescue stone" because it gives support for emotional healing related to relationship issues or any kind of heartache. Rhodonite is an ideal stone for carving and is often formed into beads and used in jewelry.
Rhodonite gets its interesting appearance from a combination of manganese, calcium, and iron. The manganese oxide creates the black veins that give Rhodonite its signature pattern. Rhodonite of a high quality can be translucent and contains very little manganese. These specimens are extremely rare and sought after by collectors.
Rhodonite is found in Canada, Australia, Brazil, India, Madagascar, Mexico, Russia, Sweden, the United States, and many other places.
