Rhodonite Rhodonite is one of several gemstones that draw their name from the Greek word for rose (rhodon), the others are rhodolite garnet and rhodochrosite. Rhodonite, however, is rarely entirely red; it is usually rose pink to red with black dendritic inclusions of manganese oxide. Rhodonite's attractive color and vitreous to pearly luster has made it popular as a decorative material. It is often used as cabochons for necklaces, and for ornamental objects.
