{ Folklore }

Rhodonite gets its name from the Greek word for “rose” and is often referred to as the “rescue stone” as it is strongly associated with relationship healing

{ Relationships }

Rhodonite is a stone that helps create realistic relationships when seeking love and also when dating. Being a pink and black stone, it combines a loving pink energy with a grounding black energy. Arguments, disappointments and problems can occur in a relationship when we have unrealistic expectations of how a partner should behave and act.

  • Wear some Rhodonite jewellery or carry it with you in a drawstring pouch when you feel you need to be more grounded in a relationship, and need to see and appreciate your partner for who they are.

Rhodonite is also the stone you should turn to after a relationship breaks up. Before entering a new relationship, we need to learn the lessons of the previous one so we don’t make the same mistakes again, and get closure.

  • Meditate, think about, or write down in your journal the positive and negative aspects of the relationship (look for both, there needs to be balance).

{ Post Relationship Break Up Ritual }

  1. Hold Rhodonite in your projective hand. 
  2. Send all the pain, the lessons, the memories and feelings of the relationship into the rhodonite. 
  3. Bury the crystal in a pot plant. 

    • Your projective hand is the hand which sends energy – most righthanded people would use their right hand as their projective hand.
    • The other hand is known as the receptive hand - it receives energy.

    { Forgiveness }

    Rhodonite is associated with forgiveness, emotional healing and compassion, releasing fear, regret and self doubt. Forgiving ourselves isn’t easy, but it is necessary for growth, letting go and learning lessons.


    • Wear rhodonite jewellery or carry a piece in a drawstring pouch with you after a relationship break up to learn to learn to love yourself again and appreciate your own company. 


    { Balance }

    Rhodonite is associated with balance and harmony.

    It is said that if you hold a piece of rhodonite and walked around your space / house, rhodonite will help you detect the yin/yang imbalance.


    If the energies are unbalanced you will feel it. 

    Too much yang - you will feel a surge of energy in your fingers. 

      • Try: place a rhodonite with more black than pink in the space. 


      Too much yin - you will feel a lifeless feeling.
        • Try: place a rhodonite with more pink than black in the space


        Balanced energy will feel tranquil and harmonised.
        • Try: keeping a pot plant with a piece of rhodonite for each member in your house will help keep the balance and harmony.
