Thinking & Feeling

Hey shoo WOW!

I had the day off today because it is a UK Public Holiday. WooHoo.

I spent the day doing admin, getting things FICA'ed, RICA'ed, appointments made and boring, frustrating stuff like that. Then I popped into the Wellness Warehouse to get some essential oils and browse around etc. I couldn't help checking out the crystals which were on display... I have always liked Rose quartz a lot.

I was drawn to a pink and black triangular stone though and in the end I had to buy it. I knew nothing about it, except it;s label said Rhodonite.

This stone gets its name from the Greek word for its rose color. It is a manganese metasilicate with a hardness of 5.5 to 6.5. Its rich pink color is often contrasted with black dendritic inclusions of manganese oxide. It is found in Russia, Mexico, the USA, Canada and South Africa.
History / Mythology
Rhodonite gets its name from the Greek word rhodon for rosy, although there are references that credit the Celtic word rhod, which means wheel, as the origins of Rhodonite's name.

Rhodonite does not seem to have a rich history of legend, but it is easy to feel this stone's unconditional love. Like Rose Quartz, this gemstone teaches the all important lesson of self love.

This is a stone of self confidence born out of trust in your own heart, your own voice, your own choices. Carrying this stone will keep your mind calm, allowing you to process chaotic situations and patiently assess your options. Rhodonite will strengthen your resolve, helping you be more disciplined in your walk.

Intuitive sources say Rhodonite is a stone for activating love energies in oneself and others. It is said to clear and activate the heart chakra, to dispel tension and anxiety & to help one establish inner balance. It is sometimes refereed to as the 'stone of peace' and may help resolve conflicts.

Metaphysical Lore
Rhodonite has been called a "Stone of Love" and helps one to achieve his/her greatest potential. It is excellent for the heart chakra and conveys unconditional love. It can help one to attain calm assurance in all activities. It further assists one in recognizing and in implementing the actions required to encourage and to further the "Brotherhood" of humanity.
