Rhodonite is a mineral that belongs to the pyroxenoid group and is known for its distinctive pink-to-red color. It is composed of manganese, iron, calcium, and silicon, with the chemical formula MnSiO3. Rhodonite is often used as a gemstone due to its attractive color and is also valued for its metaphysical properties.
Peru is one of the major sources of rhodonite in the world. The mineral can be found in several regions of Peru, including Huancavelica, Huanuco, Junin, and Lima. The deposits in Peru are known for their high-quality rhodonite specimens, which are highly sought after by collectors and lapidaries.
Rhodonite from Peru typically occurs in massive form or as crystalline aggregates. It has a characteristic pink-to-red color, often with black or brown veins running through it. The coloration is caused by the presence of manganese in the mineral. Rhodonite has a vitreous to pearly luster and a hardness of 5.5 to 6.5 on the Mohs scale.
