Found in an array of shades from rose pink to red, Rhodonite was first discovered in the 1790’s in the Ural Mountains of Russia, and was called "orletz" or “Eagle Stone” by the locals as people began to notice eagles in the region often carried small pieces of the stone to their nests. It soon became tradition to place small Rhodonite stones in their babies’ cradles as well. The custom was later extended to giving Rhodonite to travelers as a protective stone. Used for ornamental carvings, massive inlays and beautiful jewelry made famous by Czars and nobles, it became the national stone of Russia in 1913This mineral was officially named Rhodonite in 1819, from the Greek "rhodon", meaning “rose” and is the state gemstone of Massachusetts.
