Rhodonite is a rose pink to dark red gemstone with black dendritic inclusions. It is a manganese silicate, and a member of the pyroxenoid group of minerals.
The manganese is often partly replaced by iron, magnesium, calcium, and sometimes zinc, occasionally in large quantities.
Rhodonite gets its name from the Greek word, “Rhodon”, meaning “rose colored” and this attractive hue and vitreous lustre make it a popular ornamental material.
Rhodonite; Origin and Gemstone Sources
Rhodonite deposits are found in Australia (New South Wales), Finland, Japan, Canada, Madagascar, Mexico, Russia (the Urals), Sweden, South Africa, Tanzania and the USA (New Jersey).
Rhodonite Gemstone jewelry Care and Cleaning
Transparent Rhodonite is fragile, whereas opaque Rhodonite is a fairly durable gemstone, but should be cared for in order to maintain its lustre.
Since household dust contains quartz, which has a Mohs scale hardness of 7, simply wiping dust from a Rhodonite gemstone could cause scratches.
To clean your Rhodonite, simply use soapy water and a soft cloth. Be sure to rinse well to remove soapy residue.
As with most gemstones, ultrasonic cleaners and steamers are not recommended.
Always remove any jewelry or gemstones before exercising, cleaning or engaging in harsh physical activities such as sports.
It is best to wrap gemstones in soft cloth or place them inside a fabric-lined jewelry box.
