Rhodochrosite is a pale to deep hot pink or raspberry pink crystal with varying degrees of white or cream banding throughout. Rhodochrosite ranges from translucent to opaque with a glassy or pearly luster. This crystal often forms as thick and flat crystals or as grainy masses, nodules, or grape-like spheres.
Rhodochrosite represents selfless love and compassion. It is a wonderful stone to use when working with the Heart Chakra and relationships. Those dealing with loss will find a deep love within this stone. Comforting and positive, Rhodochrosite helps to bring repressed emotions to the surface to be acknowledged, addressed, and released, allowing for much personal growth to take place. Rhodochrosite aids in self-forgiveness and self-love.
Rhodochrosite is also good for clearing the Root and Solar Plexus Chakras, improving self-worth, attracting love, and relieving emotional stress. Use Rhodochrosite in meditation to relax the diaphragm for full, deep breathing. Rhodochrosite can help those stuck in any phase of the grief process, by clearing out negative vibrations from the middle chakras. Meditating with Rhodochrosite can connect one to the Divine mind, allowing one to see the purpose behind negative experiences.
Many people work with Rhodochrosite to bring much-needed love into the world. This stone is often used for repairing the subtle bodies and for reclaiming lost gifts. In this latter capacity, one can work with Rhodochrosite to bring about the healing of past events that have caused the breakdown of one's self-confidence and self-knowledge to the point where personal gifts have been given up, in favor of living in "survival mode“. Once these past issues are healed, it becomes easier for the person to remember their gifts and their true purpose for this incarnation.
Physically, Rhodochrosite heals the heart, adjusts imbalances in the circulatory and nervous systems, relieves migraines, and clears up infections. Keep Rhodochrosite in the bedroom to help with sexual issues.
