Additional Information

Rhodonite is the "non-violent communication" stone. It facilitates mutual understanding and strengthens friendships. It helps to solve conflicts in a constructive manner, and to remain clear and calm even in extreme situations. It is an excellent "first aid" stone for both emotional trauma and physical injury, and with care can help to support and treat those with heart conditions.

When working with clients who have experienced abuse in the past - particularly those who have been abused as children, it helps them to come to terms with the abuse, release the pain, and acheive a level of acceptance. This is even more effective when used in combination with larimar and aquamarine to help release the accompanying fear and anger, and help find a positive way of expressing it.
