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. (reference 1)
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. (reference 2)
