Rhodochrosite is known as the “stone of the compassionate heart”. This crystal encourages love and responsibility on both a spiritual and earthly level. Rhodochrosite helps you to connect and be of service to the planet’s consciousness. It is an excellent healer that both heals the earth and the abused. Use it if you are in need of both emotional balance and spontaneity.
Rhodochrosite gets its name from the Greek word rhodon, meaning “rose” or “rosy”.
The Incas believed this stone formed from the blood of their former kings and queens. This gave it the nickname “Inca Rose”.
Rhodochrosite is a pink or red carbonate mineral that gets its color from manganese, the same element that gives Rhodonite its rosy pink color. It occurs as a hydrothermal vein mineral that, in the right conditions, precipitates out of heated mineral rich water within the earths crust. It was discovered in the silver mines of Romania and since been found in Argentina, South Africa, China, and Colorado in the USA. Rhodochrosite is the official state mineral of Colorado.
Rhodochrosite primarily works with the heart, higher heart, heartseed, and soma chakras. It is also capable of clearing the root and solar plexus chakras.
Rhodochrosite is considered an important stone for Scorpio.
Rhodochrosite is believed to be an excellent physical healer. It may help with elimination problems, digestion, and thyroid imbalances. It is also
thought to regulate one’s heart rate and balance masculine and feminine energies in the body.
