Rhodochrosite, sometimes spelled rhodochrocite also, is a often a pink stone, but can be red, orange tan or brown as well. It often times has veins of white or even tan traveling through it, it can be clear or solid in nature.
Rhodochrosite is known as a very loving and high energy stone. As Melody calls it in her
book, 'Love is in the Earth', it is "the stone of love and balance". This stone has many
wonderful attributes to it, one being it can easily balance and align your physical, emotional and spiritual bodies with one another. It is a wonderful healer to the heart chakra and will gently open and purify your base and sacral and solar plexus chakras as well.
Rhodochrosite is also used in meditation, when it is used to meditate with one can feel much peace and tranquility in their meditation. It is said that it can connect you with your twin soul when used in meditation and put you in a golden sphere of ecstasy.
Rhodochrosite is an excellent stone for love and relationships. It is also wonderful for those that don't feel love or loved. It is said to attract a soul mate to the holder, but not necessarily a soul ate that is full of passions, and happiness, but rather one that is what is needed for the individual on a soul level. Sometimes our soul mates are not what we perceive to be the most joyful of relationships we have, but they are necessary for the growth of our souls.
Rhodochrosite is wonderful at lifting ones mood and lightening up their attitudes. People find it hard to stay depressed when wearing or carrying a piece of Rhodochrosite with them. It vibrates a strong loving energy that it is hard to feel negativity in its presence. It also acts as a wonderful healer to the emotional body Allowing one face the truth about oneself and others, but with a loving and positive awareness, not a negative one.
Physically Rhodochrosite will help to heal migraines if placed at the top of the spine. It also purifies the circulatory system, kidneys and invigorates the sexual organs.
This stone has been instrumental for me in my own healing and connecting to the true meaning of love. I just love this stone, even looking at it is calming and peaceful. I suggest that all healers have this in their healing tool kit.
