Rhodonite is a charming mineral appearing to be a silicate of manganese, calcium, or other elements. It most often forms granular to solid aggregates, only rarely you can find its tabular crystals. Quality rhodonite pieces are used as decorative stones. The most valued, however, are the varieties with manganese dendrites, forming black, tree-like shapes. This piece is from Peru.
