Rhodonite crystal meaning
Owing its name to the Greek word “rhodon”, meaning “rose-colored”, rhodonite can help you look at life through rose-colored glasses. It’s a stone of appreciation and openness, helping you find all there is to love and be grateful for right in this present moment.
Ranging in shades of light pink to a rosy pink with black inclusions, rhodonite connects with both your heart chakra and your root chakra, empowering you to take actions aligned with your heart and to feel more emotionally grounded and secure.
For those crying on the floor moments, to heal from toxic relationships or release the guilt and grief that lingers in your heart, rhodonite offers emotional cleansing and relief, giving you ground to stand on. It’s a wound healer, a repairer of broken hearts, and support to help you through the hardest times.
Rhodonite replaces criticism with compassion. It fosters understanding, patience, and forgiveness. It soothes triggers and knee-jerk reactions and helps you move through the world with a more balanced and open heart space.

Connected with the heart space, it also affects the physical heart, increasing blood flow through your circulatory system, aiding cardiac deficiencies, and benefitting the immune system through the thymus gland that lies right in the center of your chest.
Rhodonite also works well to help tone the respiratory system, increasing airflow and helping you catch your breath, literally and physically, during emotionally intense events.

Using rhodonite in your life
Wearing or carrying rhodonite
You can stay in the beautiful loving vibrations of rhodonite all day and soak them up by wearing a rhodonite bracelet or necklace, or carrying a tumbled stone with you for the day. It’s a great crystal to stick in your bra or a chest pocket so it can be close to your heart, helping balance its energy throughout the day. Wear it when you need grounding, nurturing, and emotional protection.
Heart-shaped rhodonites are the perfect companion for doing heart-based work. Their weight and smoothness make them comforting to hold and rub as a worry stone when you need it.
You can also meditate while holding one, or lay with it directly on your chest, as you focus on your heart space and imagine it letting go of all the emotions and pain it's been holding, and replacing it with loving, rose-colored healing energy.
Rhodonite towers & spheres
When you want to radiate rhodonite’s healing, love-centered energy into your whole space, a tower, obelisk, or sphere are great options to work with. You can place them on an altar space, or bedside table, in your living room or work area, anywhere you want to spread the rhodonite love vibrations around.
A sphere will radiate energy out in all directions and is also great to work with on the body, rolling it around areas of tension or over your chakras.
A tower or obelisk will focus and direct energy through its point and is great to use with specific intentions when placed in your space, or you can work with it on the body, facing the point towards wherever you want to direct its healing energy.
