Rhodonite, Not an entirely common mineral, Rhodonite is found in small deposits from Russia, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Sweden, Peru and England as well as North Carolina, Colorado, Massachusetts and New Jersey in the United States. Rhodonite has a distinctive pink hue and is often also characterized by black manganese oxide dendrite veins that create visually interesting formations.
This rosy pink gemstone gets its name from the Greek word "rhodos," meaning "rose colored." Rhodonite has been long valued as an ornamental stone. 80 square meters of columns are inlaid with Rhodonite in the Moscow Metro and Mayakovskaya Station in Russia. After the discovery of banded Rhodonite in Argentina during the 1930s, there was a boom in popularity. This particular variety of Rhodonite is sometimes referred to as "Inca Rose." In 1979, Rhodonite was made the state gem of Massachusetts.
Meaning: Something happens when you wear Rhodonite. You feel relaxed and revitalized. Rhodonite does for us what paying attention to nature always does for us: it softens our needs. It helps us put petty things behind us. It reminds us that leisure is important and that there's a bigger picture we often lose sight of. We pay attention to small things like the petals of tiny white daisies, the gossamer wings of a dragonfly, or a leaf pressed so long into a stone it has become part of it. That's the experience and wisdom of Rhodonite. It's no surprise this pink hue is associated with the heart chakra, opening the wearer to unconditional.

The name "onyx" comes from the Greek word for "fingernail," referring to the translucence of the white-colored layer of this multi-layered stone. According to myth, Cupid trimmed the nails of the sleeping goddess Venus. The Fates turned those clippings into stone to prevent even a part of Venus from dying.
The Romans were experts at glyptography (the carving of layered stones to reveal different colors) and crafted beautiful seals from onyx (white layer over black base) and sardonyx (white layer over reddish-brown base). The patterns were cut in negative relief. Engravings with a negative picture are called intaglios and those with raised image are cameos. In the Middle East, onyx was associated with sorcerers.
