RHODONITE is a manganese metasilicate mineral with a triclinic crystal system and a hardness of 5.5 to 6.5. Its name derives from the Greek word meaning “rose red.” It is now found in Sweden, Australia, India, Madagascar, Mexico, South Africa, Brazil, Canada and the USA.
Rhodonite promotes the energy of love. In this case, the love is more outer directed than with stones such as Rhodochrosite. Rhodonite encourages using one’s gifts and talents for the benefit of the community. The outer-directed love engendered by Rhodonite is one of altruism and generosity, using one’s talents to bring gifts to others. This path of generosity often offers greater satisfaction than any amount of receiving what one wants.
Rhodonite attracts the people and situations best suited for one’s unique talents, and in so using them, one can experience fulfilment of the deep desire to love and be loved. Rhodonite can also enhance the depth, clarity and meaning of one’s inner experiences, making it easier to understand the messages behind one’s dreams and visions. It can provide a psychic link to the archetypal pattern of personal destiny, helping one remain “on the beam,” for the fulfilment of one’s highest aspirations.
Rhodonite harmonizes with most other heart stones, including Rosophia, Rose Quartz, Pink Calcite, Morganite and Emerald. It also works well with Phenacite, Scolecite, Natrolite, Herderite, Sugilite and Tibetan Black Quartz.
