Natural gemstone Rhodochrosite which you can’t have enough of!

Isn’t it amazing how so many natural gemstone formations take place around the world?! Mother Nature has millions of ways to startle us and the almost miraculous formations of these stones definitely tops our list.

One of these natural stones is Rhodochrosite, which is another one from our list of favorites. Let us take you through its various characteristics and properties. If this becomes your favorite too, our job is done.

What is Rhodochrosite?

Rhodochrosite is a manganese carbonate mineral that ranges in color from light pink to bright red. It is found in a small number of locations worldwide, where other manganese minerals are usually present.

Rhodochrosite is sometimes used as an ore of manganese but is rarely found in economic quantities. Specimens with a wonderful pink color are used to produce highly desirable gemstones. Rhodochrosite is rarely found as well-formed crystals, so crystals can be extremely valuable as mineral specimens.

Its adorable shades!

Rhodochrosite comes from the Greek word ‘rhodos’, which means rose, and ‘khros, which means color.

Rhodochrosite has a pearly luster and it’s banded in layers of white to pink. The pink color is caused by the element manganese and it is formed when manganese is dissolved by ground water and combines with a carbonate material and then drips off the ceiling of caves and crevices deep underground.

The occurence.

The formation of rhodochrosite usually occurs in fractures and cavities of metamorphic and sedimentary rocks. It is often associated with silver deposits, and a few silver mines produce rhodochrosite as a byproduct.

It is commonly found in the form of stalactites and stalagmites in the caves of Argentina.

The healing powers are almost magical!

Like your own personal Cupid, Rhodochrosite attracts love by opening up the heart chakras with its healing vibrations. Let this gentle heart crystal connect you with your playful inner child. Feel your spirit begin to soar as old emotional wounds dissolve like melted candy, releasing energy blockages keeping you from happiness.

This subtle beauty is more than a love potion. It also connects the upper and lower energy fields of the body, clearing away psychic debris that has accumulated over the years. When facing painful matters of the heart, this crystal gives us the courage to trust another soul with our vulnerable hearts. It gives us the inner strength to take another chance at love because even if you fall, the Rhodochrosite crystal will always catch you.

Enhances spirituality.

Rhodochrosite is a remarkable stone for enhancing spirituality and attuning to one’s higher self. Worn in jewelry or carried, used in meditation or crystal healing layouts, it expands one’s consciousness, channeling spiritual awareness into the physical body to be manifested. It is a great tool for contemplating the duality of nature and how it affects one’s life.
