An extraordinary stone of the Heart Chakra, Rhodonite shares more than the lovely rose color of its sister stone, Rhodochrosite. While both lay bare the emotional wounds and scars of the past for healing, restoration and reinvigoration, Rhodonite focuses on nurturing our inner-selves and reclaiming all one we meant to be. Rhodonite, richer in color with effects that are deeper and more lasting, takes up the process and empowers us to reach our full potential, focusing our gifts and energies outward for the betterment of all. It is a stone of purpose, cooperation, community, altruism, and generosity of spirit. It is a talisman to further the brotherhood of humanity.
Rhodonite is an emotional healer that brings us back to center during stressful times. It is a crucial first aid stone to calm emotional shock and panic, and provides grounded support during the process of dealing with painful issues, along with healing trauma.
Rhodonite has a strong resonance with forgiveness of self and others that have hurt us, and gives the soul the love it needs in order to heal. It gently releases self-destructive tendencies, festering resentments and anger, and allows us to see both sides of an issue to reach conciliation.
It encourages the love of others. It aligns us with the spirituality of the universe in order to recognize our purpose and how our gifts and abilities may be used to effect change on Earth.
It is associated with the steady drive of Taurus, the supportive compassion of Cancer, generous protection of Leo, the ambitious optimism of Sagittarius.
