Rhodonite is named after the Greek word Rhodon meaning rose as it shows its beautiful pinks and black veins. Rhodonite supports us from transformation that we may or may not be expecting. It is a stone that enables us to express strong, genuinely felt emotions. It dispels negative states of mind, confusion and anxiety and increases the effectiveness and sensitivity of meditation. It manifests our deep needs and allows us to be heard improving communication channels and coming to mutual understandings. Rhodonite directs emotions towards goals while still keeping one attuned to subtle vibrations.
