Chunky natural rhodonite statement necklace with pink crystals. I used chunky natural rhodonite nuggets approximately 20mm each with faceted pink round 12mm crystals and 20mm faceted crystal nuggets. All the beads are separated with Tibetan silver 4mm rounds and bead caps. The length of the shortest strand is about 21 1/4 inches and the longest strand is about 24 inches. It is finished with 8mm faceted rondelle crystals, Tibetan silver fancy rings, large oval link silver color chain and a Tibetan silver "S" clasp.
Thank you for shopping with 123 Gemstones, we are a smoke free home.
The name Rhodonite is derived from the term rhodos, which is Greek for "Rose colored". - 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 varies from a soft rose-pink to a bright flesh-coloured red, with black dendritic inclusions. Rhodonite is composed of manganese iron magnesium calcium silicate and is 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. A greyish-brown variety containing as much as 20% calcium oxide is called bustamite, while fowlerite is a zinciferous variety containing 7% zinc oxide.
Rhodonite is a manganese inosilicate, (Mn, Fe, Mg, Ca)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 color (the name comes from the Greek ῥόδος rhodos, rosy), often tending to brown because of surface oxidation.
It is said that Rhodonite soothes the nervous system. This gemstone vibrates with love. Just holding this gemstone seems to promotes relaxation and a sense of well-being. This is a balance gemstone and is used to clear the psychic centers. It is said that Rhodonite raises self worth and helps ward off negativity. It has been known as a "rescue stone".
