Mineralogy of Rhodonite Quartz
Color: Reddish-pink, black and clear
Luminescence: Red (long wave)
Transparency: Transparent to opaque
Location: Rhodonite Quartz is occasionally found in pure Rhodonite deposits. Rhodonite deposits are found in Australia, Canada, Finland, Japan, Madagascar, Mexico, Peru, Russia, Sweden, South Africa, Tanzania, and the United States (New Jersey). The Rhodonite deposits in Madagascar have a particularly vivid hot pink color.
Rock Family: Rhodonite Quartz is technically a rock, rather than a mineral. As an easy way to understand the difference, think of rocks as being like cookies and minerals as being the ingredients which make up those cookies. Many different minerals are used to create a rock! In this case, three minerals are typically involved, Clear Quartz, pink Rhodonite, and black Manganese
Formation: Rhodonite is formed during the metamorphosis of sedimentary manganese ore deposits, a process which creates the rose color. If the rose colored stone is then partially oxidized through weathering it creates black patches and veins of manganese dioxide. Clear Quartz is created when liquid magma from a volcanic explosion cools down and transforms into igneous rocks. During this cooling down period, silica acid bubbles shift from being a gas/liquid into a solid compound. The bubble becomes a hollow space in the igneous rock and the silica acid becomes Quartz crystals. If no trace elements are present to change its color, the silica acid becomes Clear Quartz. In the case of Rhodonite Quartz, the Rhodonite forms first, is weathered, and then Clear Quartz forms around it.
Mining: Typically mined in various manganese ores, often in association with pure Rhodonite.
Enhancements: All available Rhodonite Quartz are natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting, and polishing.
History of Rhodonite Quartz
Rhodonite was “discovered” relatively recently by the metaphysical community and so it was not included in any early lapidaries, texts that describe gemstones and their powers. Despite being a very pretty and easily recognizable stone, it has very little history attached to it. The name Rhodonite comes from the Greek word rhodon, or rose.

Rhodonite Quartz is attuned to the Root and Heart Chakras and is linked to the astrological sign of Taurus. It is connected to the elements of Earth and Fire and vibrates to the number 9.
Emotional: Rhodonite Quartz is possibly the very best emotional healer in the crystal kingdom. It can help us to heal recent emotional wounds as well as old emotional scars from the past. Rhodonite Quartz is a powerful love stone, guiding us to a place where we can forgive ourselves and others, and return to that calm and happy place inside ourselves. It is particularly helpful for exploring questions of self-worth and confidence. Rhodonite Quartz’s gift is to help us to bring more love into the world, both love that is given and that which we receive.

Rhodonite Quartz encourages us to be generous, and to attract those people who can best help us or whom we can best help. It reduces the effects of anxiety and depression, and shows us the silver lining in otherwise dark clouds. Rhodonite Quartz helps us to keep a cool head, especially when we find ourselves under pressure or in danger. It promotes positive and creative thinking.
Physical: Rhodonite Quartz is commonly used by metaphysical healers for treating trauma and shock, and to heal open wounds. It is also said to be good for healing the physical heart in particular and injured internal organs in general.

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.
***Rhodonite Quartz has the same qualities as pure Rhodonite, however, the energy is magnified due to the presence of Clear Quartz.

These Rhodonite Quartzes were mined and tumbled in South Africa.
I met the owner of the South African tumbling company at the 2014 Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona. This company only sells tumbled stones twice a year, once at the Tucson show and later at the Sainte Marie Aux Mines International Mineral and Gem Expo in Provence, France. They offer the largest selection of high quality tumbled stones in the industry and are one of my favorite suppliers.
It would be my pleasure to hand-select a beautiful Rhodonite Quartz for you.
This price is for one stone. You can buy a single Rhodonite Quartz or several, depending on your individual needs. Each Rhodonite Quartz measures approximately 1 inch at its longest length and has a unique shape with soft edges. Tumbled stones are natural products and variations are part of their beauty.
The stone I choose for you will be smooth and free of chips, and have a unique pattern of hot pink and pure black. If you buy multiple stones, I will choose stones that look and feel particularly good together. Stones will be cleansed and smudged with sage before being shipped to you.
With their beautiful color and clean energies, these Rhodonite Quartzes are perfect for crystal healing. Add them to a medicine bag, place them on an altar, use them in a crystal elixir, fashion them into jewelry, or simply carry them in your pocket.
