When it comes to bright red stones, then Rhodolite is the perfect example. This stone ranges in color from Purple to red and its names is Greek meaning Rose Stone. This is a stone which derives its color from the red mineral known as Pyrope. Rhodolite is sometimes referred to as a semi-precious stone due to its color and the fact that it is inclusion-free. The stone has had various uses, apart from being used to make jewelry. In 1882, the Indians used to fashion bullets using this stone because they believed it was more effective; this was based on their ancient belief that Rhodolite is a blood stone.
