Rhodonite (Natural) Smooth Round Gemstone Half Drilled Beads
These beads are half drilled beads. This means that the bead will be drilled to a center point, this is a common drill hole used on pearls and beads that are to be attached to pegs for earrings etc. This style of drill hole conceals the fitting making the bead the most prominent feature; it is perfect for making little stud earrings or adding a round bead/pearl feature on to a ring.
Rhodonite was first discovered in the 1790's in the Ural Mountains of Russia and was called orletz by the locals, Russian for "the Eagle Stone" because people began to notice eagles in the region often carried small pieces of the stone to their nests. It soon became tradition to place small Rhodonite stones in their babies' cradles as well. The custom was later extended to giving Rhodonite to travelers as a protective stone.
Rhodonite is highly recognized as an emotional healer and for bringing one back to center during stressful times. It is a crucial “first aid stone” for calming emotional shock and panic, and provides grounded support during the process of dealing with painful issues. Rhodonite has a strong resonance with forgiveness and giving the soul the love it needs in order to heal. It is sometimes referred to as the 'stone of peace' and may help resolve conflicts.
