Rhodonite, sort of like Garnet–I love stones! (crystals) My mother did too. She’d often pull along side the road to pick up a stone to examine the treasure closely. My brother and I got used to the feeling of the car jerking over to the shoulder of the road—bump, bump, bump. She’s going to get (yet) another stone@! Part of my childhood that drew my attention to them in the first place. She was as excited (or more) than the rest of the world about the Moon Rock that the astronauts brought back with them, eventually making the trip to see it at the Smithsonian. Actually touching a real Moon Rock–huge! Anyway, thanks mom for reminding me of my connection with rocks and crystals at such an early age–she was a rock hound for sure!
Like many others, Rhodolite is thought to help with intuition and aiding with meditation and channeling. I’m revisiting the crystal kingdom and realizing that many of my personal collection of crystals aid with the psychic work that I do–tools of the trade. I was drawn to the crystal to purchase — or did the crystal select me like the wand chooses the witch or wizard. Moot point really. Anyway, my crystal book says that rhodonite is known as “the stone of inspiration”. Every psychic should own one!
PS–don’t mistake rhodonite for rose quartz because of the pink color (some people do); rhodonite usually has gray with it.
