Rhodonite ~

Rhodonite is a mineral which is characterised by pink and grey colouration.  You wouldn't think that the two colours would look all that good together but they do, and at one time I wore this piece a lot.  

It is not a commonly stocked gem / mineral.  I found it at Wilderness Gems in Ngatea.  The proprietor was a true rock hound so there were all kinds of fascinating pieces there which I never saw anywhere else.  I gather this wonderful shop is no longer operating, which is a pity.
