Rhodonite is a manganese metasilicate mineral that was first discovered in 1819 by C.F. Jasche. The crystal was named from the Greek word meaning “a rose”, due to it’s pink to rose red color. Rhodonite can also be found in brownish-red and black varieties with pink inclusions within. It was originally only found in the Ural Mountains in Russia, but can now be found in India, Mexico, Sweden, Madagascar, Brazil, and USA.
Rhodonite is a crystal filled with love and balance. It has been nicknamed the “Stone of Love” due to its ability to fully clear, stimulate, and reactivate your heart. Rhodonite's energies vibrate outwards and assists in self love and value. This crystal pushes you to really love yourself so that you may offer love to someone else. Rhodonite produces generosity, joy, and happiness to anyone who constantly works with or carries a piece.
Rhodonite is a very strong stone that helps reduce and suppress anxiety. This stone is a comforting stone that will “hold you” in times of need and can even be rubbed in times of distress. It will strengthen your heart and show you just how strong you can be, even in what you may think is your weakest environment. We recommend anyone who suffers from depression, anxiety, or lack of confidence to carry a piece on them daily.
Although Rhodonite works mainly with your heart and root chakras, it also offers incredible psychic abilities. Rhodonite will enhance and offer clarity to one's inner experiences, whether it's during deep meditation sessions or just simply dreaming. Through this clarity, Rhodonite helps translate the imagery of these dreams, and brings them down to an earthly level to provide a path in which these “dreams” can be understood or achieved. It is recommended to put this stone in your pillowcase to stimulate these psychic abilities fully.
Rhodonite harmonizes well with just about any heart stone, but is the most powerful in conjunction with Rose Quartz and Emerald. Both of these stones offer immense amounts of healing to the heart and physical body. Using Garnet with Rhodonite will help work towards achieving your dreams. The Garnet helps with manifestation and re-lighting that “fire” inside you, while the Rhodonite will assist with bridging the dream and physical realms together.
