Natural Rhodocrosite Gemstone
Rhodochrosite is a manganese carbonate mineral that ranges in color from light pink to bright red. It is found in a small number of locations worldwide where other manganese minerals are usually present.
Rhodochrosite, known as “Rosa del Inca” or “Inca Rose,” was believed to have been discovered in the pre-Colombian 13th century silver mines in what is now the Northern part of Argentina when it was part of the Inca Empire or Tahuantinsuyo. It became sacred to the people who thought it was the solidified blood of their ancestral kings and queens.
Today, Rhodochrosite is know as a rescue/remedy stone, one that not only aids those in need, but one that rescues the rescuer. It first directs its energy to the self, specifically for the purposes of emotional healing. It enables one to go deep within the heart to safely acknowledge, relive, and then release one’s emotional wounds.
