The allure of Rhodochrosite is undeniable, both for its raspberry-pink to rose-red color, and for the pulsating electrical energy of love it emits. While all pink stones promote unconditional love, Robert Simmons in The Book of Stones claims Rhodochrosite emanates one of the most tender and loving energies of any stone, soothing the heart, comforting the soul, and vibrating to the frequencies of inner peace. It is a marvelous talisman of joy and healing, of embracing one’s rightful powers and rising to one’s full potential.
Known as the Stone of the Compassionate Heart, Rhodochrosite symbolizes selfless love, moving one beyond mere empathy but stirring one to action on others’ behalf. Rhodochrosite, however, directs that love first toward the self for the specific purpose of emotional healing. By empowering one to earnestly examine old wounds, suppressed feelings, and traumas of childhood or past lives, it enables one to view old situations with new information, and allows one to acknowledge and release pain, along with destructive patterns of behavior one may have adopted as a means to cope. Its vibration of self-love, forgiveness and compassion for the child within, assists in reclaiming the self one was born to be.
The frequency of Rhodochrosite is surrounded by divine energies. It is believed to heal the solar chakra, As the center of emotional activity and personal will, the Solar Plexus Chakra tends to record and store unresolved issues. Rhodochrosite frees blockages in this chakra, forming a vital bridge restoring a sense of wholeness and confidence, helping to reclaim joy and playfulness.
