Rhodonite is a manganese inosilicate and member of the pyroxenoid group of minerals, crystallizing in the triclinic system. It commonly occurs as cleavable to compact masses with a rose-red colour (the name comes from the Greek rhodos, rosy), often tending to brown because of surface oxidation. The inosilicate (chain silicate) structure of rhodonite has a repeat unit of five silica tetrahedra. The rare polymorph pyroxmangite, formed at different conditions of pressure and temperature, has the same chemical composition but a repeat unit of seven tetrahedra.

Rhodonite has also been worked as an ornamental stone. In the iron and manganese mines at Pajsberg near Filipstad and Långban in Värmland, Sweden, small brilliant and translucent crystals (pajsbergite) and cleavage masses occur. Fowlerite occurs as large, rough crystals, somewhat resembling pink feldspar, with franklinite and zinc ores in granular limestone at Franklin Furnace in New Jersey.

Rhodonite is said to suppress feelings like anger and disgust. It helps you eliminate negative feelings like jealousy, frustration, greed and intolerance. It suppresses anxiety attacks, gives you self esteem and confidence to tackle difficult projects. Rhodonite stimulates creativity and encourages family and partner relationships. It is ideal for the treatment of emotions such as anger and disgust and eliminates negative emotions. Rhodonit strengthens self-confidence and stimulates creativity and stands for love, health and strength.
