The faceted gemstone featured in the rhodonite stamp design weighs more than two carats. Held in the collection of the Australian Museum, this stone is a rarity because of its rich red colour, its transparent gem quality and its regal pedigree.
Rhodonite can often be found as rose-pink with black dendritic veins or patches of manganese oxide running through it. This gemstone allows for empowerment in reaching one's full potential, focusing on gifts and energies that are outward to the betterment of all.
