About: Rhodonite is a member of the pyroxenoid group of minerals, and it is pink, rose red, or brown in colour depending on its level of surface oxidation. The more brown the more oxidation. Some pieces will even be found with black manganese oxide in them further complicating the colour spectrum and adding another layer of beauty.
The name itself comes from the greek word for “a rose” and relates to the colour of the crystal. Rhodonite is commonly found all over the globe, but is rarely found as tabular crystals.
Metaphysical: Rhodonite crystals have a heart based energy that makes them useful for relationship issues. They are also known to facilitate emotional healing as well as release blocked energy from the heart chakra. It acts to stimulate and support acceptance, forgiveness, and unconditional love towards others.
This stone can also be used as a calming balancer of emotions to help us move through traumatic emotional landscapes.
Why you should wear this stone: We include Rhodonite in our heart chakra laces for its versatile healing properties as well as its affinity to tune in with the heart chakra. Its heart based energy helps open one up to love, acceptance, and forgiveness.
When the heart chakra is out of balance we often find that forgiveness and love come with conditions. We find it difficult to be open with people and accept them for who they are and when they are. Rhodonite along with our other powerful crystals in our heart chakra laces, bracelets, and malas assists you to open your heart without fear and release the conditions which only hold you back from being the complete loving confident creative individual that you are.
