Rhodonite Meaning and Healing Properties

Rhodonite Meaning and Healing Properties

Rhodonite is an uncommon pink manganese silicate mineral of varying composition, typically containing significant amounts of iron, magnesium, and calcium. Rhodonite often forms in metamorphic rocks with black manganese oxides which may occur as dendrites, fracture-fillings, or matrix within the specimen. Rhodonite was first discovered in 1790 in the Ural Mountains near Sidelnikovo. Rhodonite was named in 1819 by Christoph Friedrich Jasche after the Greek word “rhodo” meaning “rose”. During the 18th century in Russia, Rhodonite stones were placed next to sleeping babies to promote courage and a sharp mind. According to lore, eagles would collect Rhodonite stones for their nests. Parents hoped this practice would instill the characteristics of the eagle.

Rhodonite is found in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, England, India, Peru, Russia, Sweden and the USA. Rhodonite is the state gem of Massachusetts. Rhodonite rarely occurs with well-formed, transparent crystals and is highly sought after by mineral collectors. As a gemstone, Rhodonite is particularly difficult to facet due to its perfect cleavage in two directions, lower hardness on the Mohs hardness scale, and poor toughness, causing faceted gem Rhodonite to be very rare and expensive.


Rhodonite is an incredible healer that resonates with the Heart Chakra. Rhodonite helps to harmonize relationships and promote love, healthy relationships and forgiveness. Rhodonite supports you in expressing the love you feel towards others and working through trauma that has closed the heart. Align your vibration with the frequency of love by wearing Rhodonite or holding it in your energy field. 

Hardness: 5.5-6.5

Color: Pink, red, reddish brown to brown

Structure: Triclinic

Care: 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.

Cleaning: Warm water, detergent, and soft brush.

Feng Shui Placement: Place Rhodonite in bedrooms to promote a soothing, loving energy.

Use + Crystal pairings

Rhodonite is a Heart Chakra stone that helps us express our love and feelings for others. 

Blue Lace Agate + Rhodonite

This combination is great for communicating with love and grace. Blue Lace Agate supports you in communicating your feelings and Rhodonite opens your heart to the wisdom of the Divine.

Orbicular Jasper + Rhodonite

This is a beautiful combination for promoting peace, joy and harmony in your space. Orbicular Jasper and Rhodonite would be a great combination to keep in a nursery or child's room (out of reach for safety).

Rose Quartz + Rhodonite

I love to recommend this pairing to anyone working on balancing personal needs with their relationships. Although both are Heart Chakra stone, Rose Quartz enhances the love you hold for yourself and Rhodonite enhances love for others and the Divine.

Affirmation: I am worthy to receive love and embrace love from others. I am ready to share my gifts with the world.
