Rhodochrosite Meaning and Healing Properties

Rhodochrosite Meaning and Healing Properties

Rhodochrosite is a manganese carbonate mineral that ranges in color from light pink to a deep red. Rhodochrosite rarely is found with well formed crystals. The formation of Rhodochrosite usually occurs in fractures and cavities of metamorphic and sedimentary rocks.


The name Rhodochrosite originates from the Greek words, rhodon meaning 'rose', and chroma meaning 'color'. The Incas called this breathtaking stone, "Inca Rose" and believed it to be the blood of their former kings and queens turned into stone.


Rhodochrosite is one of the most powerful healing stones to use for healing the Heart Chakra. It has an extremely gentle but powerful energy that supports you through healing any emotional trauma, abuse, loss or grief. Rhodochrosite rebuilds your self-confidence and self-worth, reminding you that you are worthy of healthy, loving relationships.


Hardness: 3.5-4

Color: Red, pink

Care: Avoid prolonged exposure to heat (or extreme heat), direct sunlight and contact with abrasive surfaces or chemicals. Remove before contact sports, weight lifting or activities where it may come into contact with force. As always, it should be stored away from minerals higher on the MOHs scale.

Feng Shui Placement: Love and relationships corner or place in a bedroom to promote love and gentle healing energy

Use + Crystal pairings

Rhodochrosite is the ultimate heart healing crystal. Its soothing energy will calm any anxiety or stress.


Larimar + Rhodochrosite

This pairing is particularly supportive during healing work (especially inner child or past life regression), meditation and shamanic journey.  As repressed traumas and emotions emerge, the pairing of these two together will help soothe any anxiety, pain and guide you to feel the love you are worthy of.


Blue Scheelite + Rhodochrosite

I love this pairing for promoting peace and confidence in speaking your mind regarding matters of the heart. It helps you gently release ties to toxic relationships and self-limiting beliefs.


Carnelian + Rhodochrosite

This combination is one of my go-to suggestions for anyone trying to get pregnant. For added potency, combine Carnelian, Rhodochrosite and Shiva Lingam. Continue to work with this combination to promote a healthy pregnancy and child birth.

Affirmation: I love and accept myself unconditionally.
