Rhodonite is an opaque, deep-rosy-pink-to-lavender gemstone with characteristic black veins called dendrites. Rhodonite is composed of manganese silicate. Most cleaning methods are safe for rhodonite (ultrasonic, etc), but like with all gemstones, avoid rough handling and extreme heat. Sometimes called the "the singer's stone," rhodonite is said to improve sound sensitivity. Many also believe it to help with the nervous system and self-esteem, and to balance trauma. It has long been considered a strong, feminine stone, as in the velvet glove over the iron fist. Natural healers associate rhodonite with the throat chakra (fifth), to help one achieve potential and dispel worry.

Approximately 25mm round rhodonite gemstone donuts. 25x6-7mm with large hole. Gemstone donut beads are often used in jewelry as pendants and focal pieces. Our newest stock of 25mm rhodonite donuts is much more multicolored than our previous rhodonite donuts, and we expect this trend to continue. Now in addition to the classic pink with thin black dendrites, you'll see olive green, peachy-browns, and thicker black dendrites.
