PATIENCE and BALANCE are what this stone is known for. Rhodonite does contain Manganese which resonates with the Heart Chakra but unlike the Rhodochrosite that is for love and compassion, the Rhodonite works to balance your emotions. When you are feeling anxious or uneasy, the Rhodonite is a good stone to sit and meditate with.
Rhodonite is one of those stones that attracts people with its beauty. It gets its amazing color due to the black and white manganese, it comes together and forms this lovely hot pink and black colored crystal. Manganese is the LOVE mineral and can be found in other stones that resonate with the Heart Chakra such as Rose Quartz and Rhodochrosite to name a couple of the more well-known stones.
One off the more better-known healing properties of the Rhodonite is forgiveness. As we all know, forgiveness isn’t easy, especially when it is yourself that you need to forgive. This is when Rhodonite can step in and help and it is important to deal with because when you are not able to forgive yourself and others, we tend to carry feelings of sadness, regret, self-doubt and even low self-esteem. Forgiveness relieves us of these burdens which allows us to balance our emotional energy which gives us better quality of life.
Rhodonite is also a great stone for helping one to understand your soul's purpose for incarnation and help you facilitate living from the heart. In the physical body, Rhodonite is a stone that helps detoxification and healing of the organs, especially the liver. It also helps stimulate metabolism.
