Fire, Water


Solar Plexus (3rd) and Heart (4th)

Key words:

Emotional healing, recovery of lost memories and forgotten gifts, self-love, compassion


“With compassion for myself and others, I engage the process of healing from past wounds and I embrace with joy the recovery of my wholeness.”

What is rhodochrosite?

Rhodochrosite is a powerful heart healer, forming a bridge between the lower chakras of Fire and the upper chakras of Water.

Because of its relationship to both elements, it has the capacity to cool emotional heat and provide insight into issues of the heart and will. Pink is the color-expression of love, and virtually all of the pink stones have energies that relate to this central theme. In the case of Rhodochrosite, the love is directed first toward the self, specifically for purposes of emotional healing.

Rhodochrosite as a Healing Crystal

Rhodochrosite carries the frequency of the courageous heart. It encourages one to take action on one’s heart-knowledge without fear. It aids in expressing love and affection and in releasing perceived slights or hurts. It lends fortitude to those who fear taking action or expressing their emotions. It helps one find the courage to pursue one’s dreams. Spiritual Rhodochrosite helps one rediscover the sacred practice of play. It stimulates creativity and expression and helps one align to the frequency of Love.

Emotional Rhodochrosite is the foremost ally in healing the inner child, especially where deep emotional traumas have left one unable to feel joy or express one’s creativity. It can help one feel more confident in using one’s will to create one’s reality.

Physical Rhodochrosite is ideal for nervous-system imbalances. It offers energetic healing for the myelin sheath that covers and protects the nerves and can be a great aid in withdrawal from caffeine and other stimulants. It is an excellent anti-anxiety and anti-stress stone.
