Crystal Rhodonite Story Background
Crystal Rhodonite Story

The Story of Rhodonite

Born through immense hydrothermal pressure, pushed into the cracks and crevices of the Earth, rhodonite forms as a seal for the holes, repairing and mending the wounds of the Earth just as it mends the wounds of our hearts.

When your internal pressure is rising, your blood is boiling, you’re moving through resentment, anger, or grief, or feeling like your heart is broken, rhodonite will be the repairer, the sealant, the band-aid for wounds that are internal and unseen. Grounding and supportive, it holds and guides you through the darkest moments of your life and the darkest corners of your inner passageways to return, always, to the light of love.

When the walls around your heart go up in self-protection from past hurt and pain you’ve experienced, you’re also walling yourself off from letting love, compassion, and grace into your life. Rhodonite can bust those walls down and create new boundaries of protection through an aura of forgiveness, self-love, and openness, to guide you forward into the world with a heart that’s open to receive all the love that exists.

This beautiful black & pink stone embodies the soothing warmth of a comforting hug, combined with the grounding energy of the Earth, acting as a bridge between your heart and root chakras. It’s a lifeline during recovery, providing solace during heartache, pain, and grief while opening you to the transformative power of forgiveness and acceptance.

Rhodonite is the embodiment of compassion, replacing criticism with understanding, patience, and forgiveness. It serves as a balm for emotional triggers and impulsive reactions, helping you navigate the world with a heart that’s more balanced and open. A beautiful companion on your self-love journey, rhodonite’s grace will guide you toward self-discovery, emotional healing, and a heart that radiates the frequency of love.

Crystal Rhodonite Property Background

Rhodonite Healing Properties

Element Fire


A stone of fire, rhodonite works to both activate and temper the fires within you, bringing you into a balance of open-hearted compassion. Warming in nature, it helps you engender more warmth in your heart and spirit, softening the hard places within you and warming up cold or resentful feelings.

Fire corresponds to the heart in Daoist Stone Medicine, which is where the fire of our passion lives. Compassion means to live “with passion”, to live inspired by the heart fire that burns within you and allow its light to lead you. Compassion is the fire that rhodonite holds.

When you feel overwhelmed or drowning in the watery sea of your emotions, or too stuck in the airy realms of the mind, rhodonite is a beautiful choice to burn off and transmute your emotions and help you come back into the grounded center within your body.

Element Earth


Rhodonite also carries powerful earth energy that helps to ground, anchor, and protect all that heart-centered fire energy that it stimulates. This makes it a powerful tool to bring you back into the present moment when your mind and emotions are scattered and is incredibly supportive when you feel like you need to cultivate strength and security within yourself.

The earth energy of rhodonite feels like a shoulder to cry on, a place to rest all your weight and lay your worries down. It stokes your connection to the heart of the Earth and integrates its regenerative, nurturing qualities into your body, pulling them up into your heart space.

It also allows the heart’s energy to move and purge through its connection to the earth, pulling out the dense, heavy, stagnant gunk of what’s sticking you in life, allowing it to drain into the ground to be used as compost for new sprouts of love to grow in your life.

Chakra Root


A beautiful stone for grounding when you feel emotionally drained or adrift at sea, rhodonite can act as a tether to bring you back to solid ground and support you through whatever pain, loss, or angst you’re moving through.

Activating for the root chakra, rhodonite extends your grounding cord down into the power, strength, and support of the earth, bringing its regenerative healing qualities into your body, restoring your health, vitality, and physical and emotional stamina so you can keep moving forward, even during times when you feel like you can’t.

It’s empowering and supportive, especially when you feel ungrounded due to emotional chaos, imbalance, or weight. It opens the portals for release and moves dense energy out, allowing your root to let go of the stagnant, heavy emotions your body is carrying, creating space for love and forgiveness to weave their way in.

Chakra Heart


Rhodonite is a remarkable healer for the heart chakra, grounding and supporting the heart’s energy through the strength of the earth. It addresses deep-seated wounds and pain lingering in the heart by clearing any blockages, stirring up and moving stagnant energy out, and replacing it with the gentle, pink light of love, forgiveness, and compassion.

A conduit of truth and acceptance, rhodonite dismantles blame, shame, and self-criticism, breaking down the heart’s walls and providing relief and support when the heart feels broken or weak through pain and grief. Its influence transforms darkness into opportunities for growth, into seeds of new light, opening the flow of the heart’s energies to bring more centeredness, acceptance, and love into your whole being.

Place rhodonite directly over the heart chakra in the center of the chest to affect healing and harmony throughout your whole body. Its energies will permeate into your heart, carrying out any toxic and dense energies through its connection to your root chakra, moving them down and out into the earth.

Energetic Qualities
Energetic Qualities


Rhodonite moves energy, flushing out stagnant and heavy emotions, even those long-held and buried deeply. It breaks up blood stagnation, clearing out heat, inflammation, and illness from the physical and emotional bodies. It moves what’s been stuck, what feels heavy, what needs to be released.


Beautiful for a frazzled nervous system or when you feel emotionally overwhelmed, rhodonite calms the nerves, utilizing its qualities of movement to move out the dense and scattered energy and move in more balance and strength. It’s centering and grounding when you feel fearful, lost, or like you’re about to lose it. It softens what’s hard.


A master stone for repairing what’s been broken, mending everything from broken bones to broken hearts. It heals what’s unseeable, what’s deep within us, filling in the cracks and wounds of our body and psyche with the light and strength of unconditional love. Incredibly regenerative, rhodonite works to restore your integrity, vitality, and wholeness on every level.

Physical Properties
Physical Properties


Rhodonite’s found in varying shades of pink and black. It can range from a delicate light pink to a deep rosy hue, often with intricate black inclusions. It can be opaque or transparent, with a vitreous or pearly luster

Black and red stones in Daoist Stone Medicine are seen to foster the connection between the kidneys and heart, which is the link between our energetic vitality and our emotional processing, making it a powerful stone for increasing emotional stability.


The pink of rhodonite is mostly a manganese silicate with a significant amount of calcium, which brings an energetically calming effect. The black inclusions are manganese oxide. Manganese supports and nourishes the heart, supporting overall immune function, calms emotional reactivity, clears heat and inflammation, and encourages bone growth, supporting our healing on the deepest levels.

You can gently massage a rhodonite stone or wand directly onto wounds and injuries to aid in healing. It’s also proven to be beneficial in post-radiation treatments, placing the stone over the affected area.

Crystal Rhodonite Care Background

Care + Cleansing for Rhodonite

As a grounding stone, the earth makes a beautiful cleanser for rhodonite. Leave it outside on the earth overnight to allow all the dense energies to be absorbed, and for its nurturing energy to be restored by mother nature.

You can also bury it in the soil of a houseplant, or let it rest on selenite or hematite overnight to cleanse its dense energies.

You can let it rest outside or on the windowsill under the stars and moonlight for a night, but be careful with too much sunlight as it may discolor it.

You can also do a quick cleanse using smoke from your favorite herbs or incense or rinse it under cold water. Since it’s moving a lot of dense emotional energies, you’ll want to cleanse it often as you work with it.

We put our hearts and souls to bring this into life for you. We want to ask you to tap on the heart button if you like this, and please share with others! Thank you. Love and blessings from Moon Omens team..
