Interesting Fact!!
In the 1790s, rhodonite was initially discovered in Russia, specifically in the Ural Mountains.
It hurriedly became a very common stone in the Russian culture, as a stone of protection for nobles, travelers, and babies. In the year 1913, it is even declared by Russia as their own national stone.
In the country, Russians call this stone as orletz -meaning the eagle stone, as eagles were actually attracted to this stone, and transported pieces of it to their nests.. Other names for rhodonite include "manganese spar" and "manganolite."
