I’ve had this Rhodonite pendant for a while and it is time for it to go to a new home. If it is something that you would like, simply post a comment that has anything to do with the symbol of the circle, the spiritual significance of Rhodonite, the color pink or green…any thought that comes to your mind will enter you into the give-away!
I’ll pick a random winner tomorrow, October 12th.

The colour green: Cornish Serpentine that my late brother worked into his Cornish Tin jewelry designs. The pendant is one of my favourite pieces.
The circle – no beginning and no end.
The circle has a center of silence and peace.
This looks like a very calming and soothing pendant.
The circular pendant and its colors remind me of the cycle of the seasons and the serene colors of autumn where I live near the Adirondacks.
With God in our lives, the circle cannot be broken.
I’m doing a Beth Moore study on the Psalms of Ascent…last week she had us write the names of those we love and care about inside a circle of thorns which represented God surrounding them…I thought of this when I saw this beautiful circular pendant ~ a circle within a circle ~ how cool.
Good Morning! What a beautiful pendant. We are celebrating our 10 Year wedding anniversary on the 12th and feeling quite accomplished as this “marriage” has been the most loyal and solid relation I have ever had in my life. I feel my life is coming full circle the strong greens of the pines and the soft pinks of roses intertwined this is our marriage! I hope you have a blessed day! – Peace, Sandra
what goes a round, comes a round
The pendant reminds me of the earth and of being centered.
Mary, what a beautiful pendant! It reminds me of the circle of life….. the never-ending, always changing yet most reliable concept of the universe. We are all connected somewhere on that circle and as we travel it’s course throughout our lives, we connect to the divine oneness of faith and trust.
I think of my wedding ring circling my finger and all that it symbolizes.
Everything in life comes full circle!
God is everywhere in the circle of life.
Beautiful! The circle represents eternity.
The circle…the heart of celtic spirituality…I have a piece of circular artwork in every room! 🙂
Mary – This is a beautiful stone which reminds me of a small wooden “comfort bird” I’ve had for years. It appears that the surface is just waiting to be rubbed to bring one a sense of relaxation and well-being.
the stone has soothing, promotes love and well being.
The circle is about cycles as in the seasons, the wheel of fortune. The circle also is about perfection (of the moment), unity (that we are connected) and infinity (of our blessings and resourcefulness). The color pink stands for the heart – love, light and healing. Perhaps the mottled pink of the pendant is a reminder of the imperfection of human love which is often restrained and conditional.
I’d love to be its next owner!
No beginning and no end…just soothing colours and smooth surfaces. Lovely.
circle of Rhondonite: centeredness of mind, body, soul
What came first to mind thinking of circle . . White Feather Farm, our flock – though spread far and wide, we are a beautiful circle of friendship – look east, look west, north or south, and you know that somewhere out there one of the flock is shining her light. We are all the richer for gathering here. Love this safe haven.
Thanks for posting the link to my site Mary. I love the eternal, never ceasing nature of the circle. And, I love your blog. Always something to think about here.
May the circle be unbroken…
The circle to me is a symbol of connectedness. I have been reading John Muir’s “My First Summer in the Sierra,” written about his time in the Yosemite region. He writes with a sense of wonder about what he sees, “This quick, inevitable interest attaching to everything seems marvelous until the hand of God becomes visible; then it seems reasonable that what interests Him may well interest us. When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.”
The pendant and life – best way to live – simply and naturally.
I wrote a post yesterday about the Japanese concept of ‘nagare’ … the flow of energy back to its source, and the beauty that is present at every point in the cycle. To me, this symbolizes so much spiritually, and it’s best represented as a circle. It’s a beautiful pendant! I don’t wear much jewelery, so if I win, please pass it on to someone … someone whose day will be really brightened by such a beautiful gift.
The Rhodonite stone is also known as the “Rescue Stone”.
Harry Chapin wrote a song about circles:
All my life’s a circle;
Sunrise and sundown;
The Moon rolls thru the nighttime;
Till the daybreak comes around.
I imagine the pendant funneling someone’s talents to the greater good.
The center is my place to create my unique life, within the embracing love of friends, family, animals, God.
Will it go round in circles
Will it fly high like a bird up in the sky
I love this song!
The circle of life, with God as our center and the colors of the earth for serenity.
Holding it in my hand would calm me, drive out my fears and let me concentrate on my family as a whole…no end to the love.

It sounds like he was a lovely man Mimi…sending you thoughts of comfort and a warm embrace of Love across the miles, Mary
So sorry for your loss, Mimi. I lost my dad a year ago and I miss him and think of him every day. I’m grateful I had that love and support of my dad for all the years I did, and the memories that are mine to hold forever. I hope your days and memories soon get easier, too.
