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. Because it resonates so closely with the inner child, it helps one to reclaim joy and playfulness, creativity and innate talents that may have lain dormant. It inspires a dynamic and positive attitude, as well as a courageous heart capable of taking action to express love and emotions and to pursue one’s dreams.
The name Rhodochrosite comes from the Greek rhodos, meaning “rose,” and khros, meaning “color,” and refers to its vivid pink to rose-red color. It has a vitreous and pearly luster, often banded in layers ranging from white or light pink, to those that are nearly red and opaque. Though most Rhodochrosite is in the pink to red color range, it can also be yellowish, orange or brown. Rhodochrosite is also referred to as Raspberry Spar, Manganese Spar, and most notably as Inca Rose (Rosa del Inca or Rosinca), as the Incas believed Rhodochrosite was the blood of their ancestral rulers turned to stone.
It is very much a rescue/remedy stone, one that not only aids those in need, but one that rescues the rescuer. It first directs its energy to the self, specifically for the purposes of emotional healing. It enables one to go deep within the heart to safely acknowledge, relive, and then release one’s emotional wounds.
Rhodochrosite helps one face the truth about oneself and others, without excuses or evasion, but with loving awareness. It assists in identifying negative behaviors and ongoing patterns and brings compassion and healing, self-forgiveness, as well as an understanding of others’ responsibility for their actions. Its purifying energy cleanses and balances the emotional body, bringing resolution, peace and renewal. It is the foremost ally in healing childhood wounds, and is often referred to as the “Inner Child Stone.” It is the perfect healer for anyone who was abandoned or feels unloved, and is the stone par excellence for healing sexual abuse.
Rhodochrosite is a natural enhancer for becoming a more mature adult by healing the wounds of childhood, and allowing one to better understand and forgive one’s parents. It is also a marvelous support stone for anyone who works with children, such as pediatricians, elementary school teachers, and caregivers.
Rhodochrosite is a stone that integrates physical and spiritual energies, stimulating love and passion while energising the soul. Rhodochrosite opens the heart, lifting depression and encouraging a positive and cheerful outlook. It improves self worth and soothes emotional stress. Rhodochrosite encourages a positive attitude, creativity and innovation, and enhances dream states.
Rhodochrosite regulates and stabilizes the heart beat, balances blood pressure and stimulates circulation, the kidneys and reproductive organs. It alleviates migraines, skin disorders, thyroid imbalances, and intestinal problems. Rhodochrosite purifies the circulatory system and restores poor eyesight.
Rhodochrosite contains manganese, an important physiological component of the body necessary for bone growth, tissue repair, and assimilation of minerals. It is traditionally used to assist the heart and circulatory systems, stabilize blood pressure and pulse rate, and placed at the base of the skull, to relieve tension migraines. It is thought to correct thyroid imbalances, and remove irritants from the lungs, ameliorating breathing problems and asthma.
Rhodochrosite is an exceptional stone for directly attacking somatizations, the physical disorders that stem from emotional or mental suffering. Gem Rhodochrosite can be an invaluable ally for use alongside treatments for healing cancer, liver purification, coronary issues and other disease. Rhodochrosite is also ideal for nervous system imbalances, offering energetic healing for the myelin sheath that covers and protects the nerves. Though not a cure, it provides remarkable relief for the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, and some cases of multiple sclerosis (MS), especially when used in conjunction with Rhodonite (as in this mala). It can also be of benefit in withdrawal from caffeine and other stimulants.
Rhodochrosite is highly effective for skin disorders. Shingles, a painful viral infection caused by the chicken pox virus, may emerge when one is depressed or in mourning, and some types of rash, hives and boils are physical manifestations of stress, depression and anxiety. (A soothing elixir for external skin disorders may be made by placing Rhodochrosite in distilled water (or other natural mineral/spring water), then energizing the mixture in sunlight for several days. Heat the water and soak a cloth in it for use as a poultice. It not only relieves itchy or painful irritations, but penetrates the infected areas of the tissues for cleansing, as well as removing the dysfunctional negative aspects that are present.)
Rhodochrosite is a remarkable stone for enhancing spirituality and attuning to one’s higher self. It expands one’s consciousness, channeling spiritual awareness into the physical body to be manifested. It is a great tool for contemplating the duality of nature and how it affects one’s life. Rhodochrosite is a marvelous stone for meditation, expanding the consciousness and allowing for deep relaxation, acceptance and balance. This stone strengthens one to go within the self for effective solutions to problems, and allows one to move back in time for the recovery of lost memories or past-life healing. It is highly effective for reliving and releasing childhood traumas, and placed over the heart can gently help disentangle the ties of outgrown relationships. Rhodochrosite may be used during meditation to help ascertain the purpose for one’s present incarnation, and to gain clarity and direction for one’s mission in life. It’s a stone esteemed for healing disconnection from the spiritual realms and inspiring one to open the heart to universal love. It links one into the karmic purpose of the present incarnation, and is said to enable one to see prior soul contracts.
With practice, deep meditation with Rhodochrosite may allow one to “melt” into the sphere of golden ecstasy.
Rhodochrosite also provides a marvelous link to the Divine Feminine and qualities such as compassion, inner peace, tolerance, and love.
Rhodochrosite reflects the Light of the heart and love, and stimulates the Heart Chakra. The Heart Chakra is located near the center of the breastbone, regulates our interaction with the external world and controls what we embrace and what we resist. It gives us the balancing ability to be ourselves within the environment, and helps in our relationships. It’s task is also to clear and activate the Solar Plexus Chakra, the energy distribution center. This chakra is located between the ribcage and navel, and controls the immune and digestive systems. When balanced physically, we have strength to fight infections, are free of allergic reactions, and are able to use the nutrients we ingest. 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 between the upper chakras of higher consciousness and the lower chakras of energy, restoring one’s sense of wholeness and confidence to use one’s will in creating one’s reality. When the Solar Plexus is out of balance spiritually, we feel fear – of the disappointment or displeasure of others, or to subordinating our life and pleasures to the will of others. Spiritually, when the Solar Plexus is in balance we are free to interpret the world through our own thoughts and emotions and not live in fear of violating the dictums of others.
Rhodochrosite is a valuable Earth stone for healing the planet and showing love to the Mother of us all. It not only assists us in serving Earth in her time of need, but demonstrates the joy that can come from this responsibility.

An extraordinary stone of the Heart Chakra, Rhodonite shares more than the lovely rose color of its sister stone, Rhodochrosite. While both lay bare the emotional wounds and scars of the past for healing, restoration and reinvigoration, Rhodochrosite focuses on nurturing the inner self and reclaiming all one was meant to be.

Rhodonite was first discovered in the 1790’s in the Ural Mountains of Russia near Maloe Sidelnikovo, and was called orletz by the locals, Russian for “the Eagle Stone” because people began to notice eagles in the region often carried small pieces of the stone to their nests. It soon became tradition to place small Rhodonite stones in their babies’ cradles as well. The custom was later extended to giving Rhodonite to travelers as a protective stone. Massive blocks of orletz containing Rhodonite and other manganese minerals weighing up to 48 tons apiece were mined from this location and many mines throughout the Urals, used for ornamental carvings, massive inlays and beautiful jewelry made famous by Czars and nobles. It became the national stone of Russia in 1913.
