Stone in the color of a rose
Rhodonite is a pink to red mineral with black dendritic veins. It was first discovered in 1790 in the Ural Mountains of Russia and was initially referred to as Orletz by the locals. In 1819 the mineral was officially renamed rhodonite by Christoph Friedrich Jasche, referring to the Greek word 'rhodon' which means 'rose'.
Orletz is Russian for "Eagle stone". Locals began to notice that eagles in the region often took small pieces of the stone with them to their nests. It soon became a tradition to also place small rhodonite stones in the cribs of their babies. The custom was later expanded by giving travelers rhodonite as a protective stone on their travels.
