Rhodonite is a nurturing and loving stone that provides emotional balance. Known for promoting the brotherhood of man, this crystal helps you to see all sides of the situation and come to a healthy, fair resolution. It is also very grounding, as it is capable of aligning the soul more closely with its vibration during meditation. Rhodonite seeks to unite people by allowing one to clear emotional wounds, forgive others, and see the loving oneness that binds us all.
Rhodonite’s name comes from the Greek word rhodon, meaning “rose” or “rosy”.
Russian Czars supposedly crafted platters out of rhodonite to give as wedding gifts. In fact, this stone served as an important part of Russia’s historical culture, as its people once placed it in cribs to watch over infants.
Rhodonite is an uncommon mineral found in metamorphic rocks, primarily those that contain manganese. It is typically pink in color with black markings. This stone is primarily found in Russia, Sweden, Spain, Germany, Brazil, and Mexico.
Rhodonite works especially well with the Heart, High Heart, and Heart Seed chakras. It also resonates with the Solar Plexus chakra.
You can place rhodonite in full moon moonlight to energize. It can also be moved through sage smoke or incense, placed in rice, or buried in the earth overnight.
Taurus, Cancer, and Pisces are thought to resonate with this stone.
According to folklore, rhodonite aids the processes of the nervous system, lungs, and ears. It is also a wound healer with an affinity for helping the bones, joints, and immune system.
