At London Fossils and Crystals we use Rhodochrosite for people looking for ‘love’ a ‘sole mate’ someone to enjoy life with them.  Rhodochrosite is said to be excellent anxiety and anti-stress stone, encouraging one to love themselves, thus strengthening their Aura.

Rhodochrosite is a manganese carbonate, Rhodochrosite occurs in massive, granular, botryoidal, nodular or stalactitic habits, but it occasionally forms prismatic, tabular or rhombohedral crystals.

The name Rhodochrosite refers to the Greek word for ‘rose-red’ colour. Most Rhodochrosite is in the pink-to-red colour range, but it can also be yellowish, orange or brown.

The most important deposits in Argentina, where Rhodochrosite formed in the Incan silver mines after they abandoned in the thirteenth century. Fine Rhodochrosite crystal specimens have been found in Colorado in the Sweet Home mines and other nearby localities.
