Rhodochrosite refers to the Greek word for its rose-red color and generally this stone is in the pink to red color spectrum but can be yellowish, orange or brown. Pink is the color expression of love, which virtually all pinkish stones have energies that follow this common theme. Rhodochrosite is a powerful heart and emotional wound healer that works vibrationally to support self-healing and can be used in meditation to assist in moving back in time to recover and relive lost memories. It is also said to be an excellent anti-anxiety and anti-stress stone and an excellent aid in the withdrawal of stimulants.
