Rhodonite is a manganese silicate with lacy veins of black manganese oxide forming elegant patterns within the pink stone. First discovered in Russia in the Ural mountains, local legend says the great eagles carried Rhodonite to their nests, inspiring Russian villagers to place it in their children’s cribs to help them become strong and free like eagles.
Commonly known as the stone of love, Rhodonite nurtures self-love and respect, as well as love for others. It is highly beneficial for balancing the emotions and assists the process of forgiveness and reconciliation. It also helps one reach their potential and heal their relationships. Rhodonite is said to alleviate emotional shock and panic and has traditionally been used to improve hearing, restore physical energy and balance yin-yang.
