This listing is for one 16 inches Strand of 4mm Rhodonite beads in Round shape. Each strand of beads is similar to the photo, but is unique due to natural variations.
Like Rhodochrosite, Rhodonite comes in rosy to deep pink colors but has black dendrite inclusions throughout. Its name is derived from the Greek word rhodon (pink). It is much more durable than Rhodochrosite and does not react to acids the way Rhodochrosite does. Rhodonite will have a flat finish, because it does not polish very well. Rhodonite is called the "singer's stone" because it makes one more sensitive to sound, as well as helping the nervous system and the feminine reproductive system. It is found in Australia, Japan, Canada, Madagascar, Mexico, Russia, Sweden, New Jersey and Colorado.
