RHODONITE: is a manganese inocilicate that derives its name from the Greek word "Rhodon", meaning "rose". While similar to Rhodochrosite, Rhodonite is typically a deep pink to mauve color, sometimes with inclusions of black manganese oxide veins running through it, giving it a distinct appearance. Rhodonite is believed to be a calming stone that decreases anxiety and stabilizes your emotions, helping one to pay more attention to detail. It is said to soothe and bring order to feelings that are scattered, imbalanced, or ungrounded. Some believe that Rhodonite can increase language skills and raise self-esteem. The pink color of Rhodonite is said to enhance passionate love, while the black inclusions keep the wearer grounded. Physically, some believe that Rhodonite helps to restore physical energy after a trauma, improves hearing, gives relief to emphysema, eases joint pain and inflammation, decreases sensitivity to light, and even helps with strep throat.
"Block" Gemstone is the general term used to describe either a reconstituted or man-made reproduction which may or may not contain any natural byproduct or gemstone partials. The reference to "block" more often describes the process whereby a mixture of resins and dyes are combined to produce a loaf sized block suitable for carving small heshi beads and intricate pieces for inlay work.
