Rhodonite is a manganese inosilicate, (Mn,Fe,Mg,Ca)SiO3 and member of the pyroxene group of minerals, crystallizing in the triclinic system. It commonly occurs as cleavable to compact masses with a rose-red color, often tending to brown because of surface oxidation.
Intuitive sources say Rhodonite is a stone for activating love energies in oneself and others. It is said to clear and activate the heart chakra, to dispel tension and anxiety & to help one establish inner balance. It is sometimes refereed to as the 'stone of peace' and may help resolve conflicts.
