This gorgeous small collection of Otago pink Rhodonite has spectacular markings.
Vibrant pink tones peek through a mostly black and tan stone, with jolts of minerals that imitate lightning and stormy swirls of colour, this is one amazing stoneform our last time out collecting on the East Coast.
She is collected and carved by hand, this taonga is an excellent example of our only two east coast stones.

A vivid pink stone with highlights of white, brown, and occasionally purple, rhodonite is formed from manganese silicate and is usually found with a black ‘rind’ of pyrolusite. Its colour can range from light candyfloss pink to garnet red, and its soft, feminine hues balance the strong forms of our carvings. We gather for our pink rhodonite by hand just south of Dunedin and it is the only stone from the east coast that we work with.
Pink rhodonite is associated with the heart chakra and provides emotional healing, energetic grounding and the restoration of balance by unblocking the throat and heart chakras.
