Rodingites are Calc-silicate rocks associated with serpentinites, the a name was given originally by Bell (1911), to lime-rich, coarse- to fine-grained, altered gabbros, composed primarily of grossular and prehnite in the vicinity of the Roding River in the Dun Mountain ultramafic complex, New Zealand.

Rodingites are fine grained, dense, withe, green or pink colored rocks rich in Calcium-aluminum-silicate minerals (Grossular, Phrenite, Wollastonite, Vesuvianite, Diopside, Tremolite, Chlorite, Spinel, Calcite, Quartz). They are locally developed along serpentinite-country rock contact or, more commonly, as dike, sills, pods or boudin completely enclosed by serpentinite. Rodingites are frequently found at the contacts between serpentinites and mafic or felsic intrusive bodies, also commonly occur at the contacts between serpentinized peridotites and country rocks of diverse origin. In all cases, these calc-silicate rocks are metasomatic products of the alteration of the various rock types in contact with serpentinite, and, in some cases, of the serpentinite itself. mass transfer, during metasomatic processes, is believed to be of the infiltration type and is due to circulation, during serpentinization, of an aqueous fluid of high pH and high Ca2+ and OH- contents.

Ripe with rich healing properties, those who welcome the rosy glow of Rodingite into their world are sure to feel those walls around the heart space falling down. We all throw up walls of protection, some are healthy boundaries and some come from blockages or not holding trust in the universe. With Rodingite on side, you can work to bring your heart to a place of purity and elegance and step out on the journey towards your higher truth. Anyone who has ever wanted to find the capacity to grow their love and give back to the world, this stone is your go-to...
