Rhodonite tumbled stone
The rose-pink stone actually takes its name from Rhodon, the Greek word for Rose. It was first discovered in the 1790s in the remote Ural Mountains that ripple across Russia. Since then the pink colored crystal has also been unearthed in India, Mexico, Sweden, Madagascar, Australia, South Africa, Brazil, Canada, and the USA. Made up of manganese inosilicate and with swirling shadows of manganese oxide, it measures between a 5 and a 6 on the Mohs hardness scale. It’s a solid stone with a visible eye-catching strength – the Rhodonite isn’t one to shy away.

Rhodonite Healing Properties
Ripe with rich healing properties, those who welcome the rosy glow of Rhodonite into their world are sure to feel those walls around the heart space falling down. We all throw up walls of protection, some are healthy boundaries and some come from blockages or not holding trust in the universe. With Rhodonite on side, you can work to bring your heart to a place of purity and elegance and step out on the journey towards your higher truth. Anyone who has ever wanted to find the capacity to grow their love and give back to the world, Rhodonite is your center.
Physical Healing Properties
While much of Rhodonites power is attributed to its beautiful emotional and spiritual properties, that doesn’t mean it falls short when it comes to bringing a breath of fresh healing air to your body too. The Rhodonite crystal is softly invigorating and gifts you a strength you never knew you had.
For those who feel their energy is drained (particularly after a strong emotional spell or after a bout of trauma) then Rhodonite’s soothing vibrations are enough to bring you back to life. Of course, it connects with the heart and circulatory system, keeping your ticker beating bright. The rose stone also sends energy to the endocrine system along with curing stomach ulcers, aiding digestion and helping with autoimmune diseases. It also helps the body heal from scarring and can take the sting out of insect bites.
Mental & Emotional Healing Properties
Healing emotional wounds and putting you on the pathway to complete unconditional love – when it comes to mental and emotional wellbeing this is where Rhodonite shines. For those who want to clear their heart of pain and bring down the barriers that may be holding them back, Rhodonite is ready to go to work on helping you dismantle anything that could be having a negative impact on your self-worth.
All love starts with self-love and the more we are able to stand in the light of our own self-confidence and our own talents, the better equipped we can be to turn that love outwards and send it spiraling into the universe. If you have issues with abandonment or betrayal or anything that translates to unhealthy attitudes towards relationships, Rhodonite can be an amazing relationship counsellor to get your love life back on track. It’s a stone that encourages mutual understanding and the ability to embrace compromise from a place of pure and honest acceptance.
As mentioned, Rhodonite has a huge connection to the heart chakra. The heart chakra is where our love, trust, and ability to bring compassion comes from. As life can be brimming with hard knocks, it's our heart chakra that can often take the hit. We throw up walls, we shut down, and our trust levels diminish. When we work to clear the blockages that clog up the heart space, we may find ourselves healed and in harmony and able to bring about healthy levels of love both internally and externally.
Those Rhodonite crystals that come swirled with plenty of darker patches also resonate strongly with the root chakra. This is our place of safety, its how we root into the earth beneath our feet and it all relates to our sense of security in the world.
It goes without saying that as a stone of deep love, Rhodonite comes with more than a pinch of positivity. It brings joy and energy and a spark that can light up a room. If you feel like you need some added power in reducing the negative energy in your life then you can also pair Rhodonite with Sugilite for even more intense action.
