For April’s crystal of the month our crystal healer Rebecca Marr has chosen rhodonite, the ‘stone of love’, to bring generosity, joy and happiness into your life
Pretty in pink, the rhodonite stone brings a flush of dark-hued shocking pink shades to light up your life. Sharing its pink colour scheme with that quiet time just before the dawn or with a wildflower meadow in spring bloom, it’s no wonder that one look at rhodonite is enough to stir up all the pleasures of the heart. While the sister stone of rhodochrosite is all about sending loving vibes to your soul and taking back space, the rhodonite is all about putting yourself in a healthy healing place so you can send those loving vibes back out into the world and do your bit for the world at large.
The rose-pink stone actually takes its name from rhodon, the Greek word for rose, and like many rose-red and pink stones rhodonite is deeply connected to the heart chakra. For those who feel as if they need a helping hand in replacing the life trap of fear with forgiveness, compassion and true open-hearted authentic and healthy love – this is the stone you need to bring lashings of peace and layers of healing vibrations into your life. With rhodonite on side we can occupy spaces free from the tangle of toxic relationships and we can bring an altruistic beauty back to our world.
Rhodonite is a crystal filled with love and balance. It has been nicknamed the ‘stone of love’ due to its ability to fully clear, stimulate and awaken your heart. Rhodonite’s energies vibrate outwards and assist in self-love and value. This crystal pushes you to really love yourself so that you can offer love to someone else. Rhodonite produces generosity, joy and happiness to anyone who constantly works with or carries a piece of it.
Rhodonite is a very strong stone that helps reduce and suppress anxiety. It is a comforting crystal that will ‘hold’ you in times of need and can even be rubbed in times of distress. It will strengthen your heart and show you just how strong you can be, even in what you may think is your weakest environment. We recommend anyone who suffers from depression, anxiety or lack of confidence to carry a piece on them daily.
