History & Origin:

Rhodonite is a manganese silicate that is known for its distinctive pink to red hue & bands of black manganese oxide veins. This gem is primarily found in metamorphic rocks alongside other manganese-rich minerals. It was first discovered in 1790 in the Ural Mountains near Sidelnikovo in Russia. Rhodonite continues to hold a special place in the hearts of Russian culture. In the 18th century, parents would place this pink stone in the cribs of their sleeping children in the hopes of bringing them courage, as well as gift them to newlyweds to bring love & protection. This stone gets its name from the Greek word “rhodon,” meaning “rose,” reflecting its rose-pink colour. Rhodonite can be found in locations including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, India, Mexico, Peru, Romania, Sweden, Russia & the United States (where it is the declared state gem of Massachusetts.)
