More than just pretty in pink, this beautiful crystal is a real love healer. First found in the silver mines of Romania, deposits are now located all around the world. Rhodochrosite is a very energetic and spiritually active crystal that works wonders to support and heal emotions, and aid in the stimulation of love and compassion towards yourself and others. The name derives from the Greek word for ‘pink’ and is because of its resemblance to the rose flower which symbolizes love. It can also be thought of as your own personal cupid, and in ancient Inca tribes it had royal origins and was said to be formed from the blood of king and queens.
Greatly attuned to your Heart Chakra, Rhodochrosite will open up and heal your heart with its calming vibrations and mend emotional wounds that you may not even know you had from childhood. When facing painful matters with our vulnerable hearts, this crystal gives us the courage to trust, improve self-worth and soothes emotional stress. It can also aid in lifting depression and encourage a positive and cheerful outlook. When you wear Rhodochrosite or carry it with you, you will notice an increased feeling of compassion, deeper emotional connections and the ability to love without judgment. This stone allows us to be brave and open to love in its most beautiful and purest form.
