Rhodochrosite is often confused with rhodonite.  Not only is the name similar, being derived from the same Greek words “rhodos” and “khros” meaning rose and colour, but they are also found in similar colour varieties in the same areas. It is known that the Incas were using the crystal for jewellry as far back as 1400 AD.  This is why the stone is also called Inca Rose and roseinca.

As a pink stone, it naturally works well on the Heart Chakra and it is good for helping people to find the right balance and fight addictions.  This stone may be used to strengthen the body’s energy and be helpful when you are trying to integrate different aspects of your life together, particularly if you are feeling fragmented after traumas.  It is a good crystal to use to strengthen and repair your aura when you are feeling drained.
