Rhodonite can assist one in the attainment of ones “greatest potential”, dispelling anxiety. It helps one further the brotherhood of humanity, and encourages  generosity of spirit. Rhodonite has been called a “stone of love” because it stimulates the heart chakra and conveys unconditional love to the physical plane. Rhodonite is good for confidence, emotional balance, grounding energy, and balancing yin and yang. It can help alleviate confusion, doubt and codependency, and helps one remain calm in dangerous or upsetting situations.
