Rhodochrosite resonates strongly with both the heart and root chakras, encouraging one to literally ground in loving vibrations. Having a stone that works on both the heart and root chakras makes Rhodochrosite an important stone for those wishing to draw in love while letting go of old issues that interfere with receiving and holding onto loving vibrations. The grounding aspect of this stone helps to keep one emotionally stable and clear minded in that process. I like to think of Rhodochrosite as the 'mature' heart stone.
When working with Rhodochrosite, one may experience an improved sense of self-worth, less emotional stress, a greater sense of love in relationships and an ease in accepting the relationship as it truly is. Rhodochrosite deepens a sense of self, allowing one to let go of past issues that interfere with self love.
From The Crystal Bible, "Rhodochrosite represents selfless love and compassion. It expands consciousness and integrates the spiritual with material energies. This stone imparts a dynamic and positive attitude. Rhodochrosite is an excellent stone for the heart and relationships, especially for people who feel unloved."
