Chakra: Heart, Root
Astrological Sign: Taurus
Element: EARTH, FIRE
known as a 'stone of Love', 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, richer in color with effects that are deeper and more lasting, takes up the process and empowers one to reach one’s full potential, focusing one’s gifts and energies outward for the betterment of all.
Rhodonite is highly recognized as an emotional healer and for bringing one back to center during stressful times. Rhodonite can be used to project elegance and assuredness. It balances the Yin-Yang energy, synthesizing the mind/body connection. Rhodonite helps to achieve one's greatest potential. 

Rhodonite is also known by the name Singer's Stone. Rhodonite 'Rhod' is the Celtic word for 'wheel' and this calm, warming stone brings inner balance and allows us to understand our Cosmic Purpose as we tread upon the Wheel of Life. It gives calm assurance, encourages generosity of spirit and helps to balance relationships and to understand new concepts and teaching on a heart level. 

Wearing rhodonite has the same effect as what paying attention to nature does for us. It softens our needs. It helps us put petty things behind us. It reminds us that leisure is important and that there's a bigger picture we often lose sight of. It tells us to enjoy life by paying attention to seemingly unimportant things - like morning mist shining in the sun on a rose petal, the delicate patterns found in the gossamer wings of a dragonfly, etc. That's the experience and wisdom of rhodonite.
