They call this rock 'Rose Red' and they are right. Its colours are as diverse as the Rose in your garden.... From the Palest Pink Blush to the Blood Red Rose Bud.... and with it, comes Black veins woven through the stone. I have found this a beautiful stone of contrast.
... and found in our own back yard... Moombie, Tamworth, Australia.
A stone of wisdom, born from the understanding of emotions. The lessons of finding strength in your own personality to get over come things, finding the strength to let go when needed.....
the lesson being... if you cannot let go, you cannot go anywhere.. you are stuck, unable to grow.
The realization of Spirit.... you are a "spirit being" with a personality you wear as makeup....
In working with this stone the bright pink gave me a feeling one could have a passionate love that is grounded. It is one of the heart stones which would promote unconditional love for mankind.
Since illness in the body is believed to start as tension in the mind, Rhodonite has a very calming, warm and nurturing feel about it.
All indications suggest that Rhodonite is a wound healer, a stone for injuries, bleeding wounds and insect bites, strengthens muscles. heart and circulation and helps with Autoimmune diseases and with stomach ulcers......
Defiantly a stone needed around the home.
