Rhodonite Information

What is Rhodonite?

The name rhodonite is derived from the Greek word for rose, rhodos, which of course refers to the hue this stone possesses. It ranges from various shades of pink to red, with black or brown markings spread across its surface. The stone’s color combination and structural traits promote a powerful sense of love for oneself and others. When the stone is polished, its patterning resembles that of marble; and the red shades of rhodonite can be so deep in color, that they may in some instances rival rubies in richness and saturation.

Rhodonite can be found in several different locations around the world; Europe, Australia, Asia, and North America included. It is often discovered in massive growth form (large pieces). In rare occurrences however, it can be found as tabular crystals (flat-surfaced and broad) as well.

General Properties of Rhodonite

Rhodonite, like most pink crystals, may be referred to as a love stone. The love promoting vibrations within it work closely with the heart chakra to create balance and healing. It is regarded for an ability to impart feelings of fondness and nurture to its users.

This stone is capable of stimulating feelings of acceptance, forgiveness, and unconditional love. This makes it a suitable tool for when you’re working to heal relationship issues. It can help you to determine whether the problem in your relationship is related to how you have been interacting, or if the issues are more related to your partner, or whether it is both of these things combined. Whether your issue regards an intimate partner, friend, or family member; rhodonite can help you to attain a more level-headedness that will allow you to avoid or solve conflict with that person.

As so often with stones of similar coloring, this one helps us to release guilt and shame from past actions, to let go of resentment, and to create healing within emotional issues of all kinds. Rhodonite will enable improvement when a person is dealing with low self confidence as well.


On yet another metaphysical level, rhodonite can be a valid means of self-discovery. When used in meditation, it taps into energies that allow you to discover any innate talents that you may have but may not be aware of. It is due to this property that some feel these gemstones can shed light upon where our destinies may lie.

Another benefit of rhodonite is that it is an emotional balancer that can be used to bring about mental peace and calmness. Having a piece handy will potentially prevent us from taking erratic action when feeling distraught by anger or fear. This of course, can help us to avoid making decisions that we might end up regretting later on.

As a Healing Stone

Since rhodonite is known as an emotional stabilizer, its properties as a healing stone primarily target conditions brought on by emotional distress. Therefore, it helps relieve health ailments such as body aches, fatigue, and high blood pressure; which are brought on by emotional ailments such as anxiety, heartache, grief, or fear.

Rhodonite may also be used for other healing applications, including: boosting the immune system, cardiovascular support, arthritis and joint pain relief, regulation of the thyroid and pituitary gland, and the betterment of various lung conditions.
