Rhodonite is a mineral, found mainly in rose-pink with black veins shades. Its name derives from the Greek word "rhodon" (rose), because of its colour that reminds that of a rose.

 

Although its description as a gemstone took place in the 19th century, rhodonite has been known from many centuries ago, used mainly for decorative objects and sarcophaguses. During the Middle Ages, it was considered to be a powerful stone, endowed with magical powers, bringing happiness, honour and joy.
