Rhodonite rough material

Rhodonite is a nice hard material which comes in varying shades from light to dark pink and often with black veining.

Rhodonite is found in may parts of the world from Argentina to Norway and also here in Colorado. It is among the suite of minerals that are associated with silver mining. Rhodonite is a manganese silicate, which makes it hard.

Another mineral which is closely related to Rhodonite is Rhodochrosite. It is a manganese carbonate.
