Stone of Love & Balance

Rhodonite commonly occurs as cleavable to compact masses, usually found in metamorphic rocks associated with other manganese minerals. It is also found in rocks that have been altered by contact metamorphism, hydrothermal and metasomatic processes. Crystals are rare. It was once mined as an ore of manganese. Main use now is as an ornamental gemstone. New Age Therapists say rhodonite decreases anxiety while increasing attention to detail. It is also a calming stone, with energies used for easing anger as well as calming stress and anxiety. It enhances Love and will assist one in attracting a good mate.
