Rhodonite is one of the Off Colors.


Rhodonite first came to Crystal Island with the other Off Colors. She quickly became friends with Bismuth, who took her, Fluorite, and Padparadscha to the Steamworks to be overhauled. She also quickly became friends with Murdoch, Victor, Kevin, Arthur, Edward, and Henry.


Rhodonite is shown to stress out a lot, and she is easily frightened. She is also extremely paranoid, most likely due to the years hiding in the sidings on her old railway. However, Rhodonite is also very kind and can be level headed at times.


Rhodonite is a freelance design, although she resembles Arthur.


Rhodonite is painted pink with dark purple lining. She has a pink bufferbeam/footplate, as well as her name on her boiler in dark purple. She has her gems on her coal bunker.

Rhodonite has two gemstones. One is a circular pink gem that resembles a cabochon, a gemstone that has been polished, but not faceted. The other is a circular gem with a square facet that is pink and dark purple. The are both located on her coal bunker.
