As most of the gemstones, Rhodochrosit also has some healing powers. Rhodochrosite is a stone that integrates physical and spiritual energies, stimulating love and passion while energising the soul. Rhodochrosite opens the heart, lifting depression and encouraging a positive and cheerful outlook. It improves self worth and soothes emotional stress. Rhodochrosite encourages a positive attitude, creativity and innovation, and enhances dream states.
I got the stones I used for my jewelries straight from Argentine, one of the few places in the world where it is actually minded. The stone itself is a manganese carbonate mineral, which is typically pink colour. The more dark pink colour makes the stone more valuable.
