Tips for Choosing
Only the finest quality, pure gems yield the therapeutic results we expect from gemstone energy medicine. The higher a gem’s quality, the more therapeutically powerful it is. As a gem rises in quality, its therapeutic potency often increases far more than its price. Going up even one level of quality can deliver many times more therapeutic power.
Next to quality, the most important factor in determining a gemstone’s therapeutic power is mass. Quality being equal, larger gems are more potent than smaller ones. If your neck is sensitive to weight, consider wearing somewhat smaller gems. Children usually require shorter necklaces and smaller gems.
Quality and gem size being equal, longer necklaces are more therapeutically potent than shorter ones because they contain more gemstone mass. Consider your comfort when choosing; for example, shorter people may prefer wearing shorter necklaces. If you wish to wear more than one necklace simultaneously, ideally they should be of different lengths. All necklaces 23 inches or shorter contain a 14K gold clasp; longer necklaces have no clasp.

Rhodochrosite helps develop inner freedom by neutralizing the destructive behavior patterns that restrict personal growth and undermine physical health. First, Rhodochrosite neutralizes destructive emotional patterns. Then it cleanses any disharmony caused by the neutralization of the destructive patterns. Finally, its energy helps you rebuild a healthy, solid, and efficient emotional foundation. These three functions—neutralizing, cleansing, and rebuilding—all work together to promote inner freedom.
To understand how Rhodochrosite works requires some understanding of the energetic makeup of patterns. Behavioral patterns manifest in the subtle bodies as what appear to be thin lines. A closer look reveals that these lines are made of blocks positioned one after the other. One block is a certain cause, the next block is your response to that cause; the next block is a similar cause, the next is your response, etc. The more often you respond in the same way to a particular cause, the longer a particular pattern line becomes. As soon as you finish reacting to a certain cause, the next cause block starts to form. As soon as a new cause block is completed, it develops something like a magnetic charge that draws to it the response characteristic of that particular pattern line. The longer a pattern line is, the stronger its magnetic charge and the more strongly it directs you to react in the same way.
Of course, not all behavior patterns are negative or undesirable. Rhodochrosite affects only undesirable pattern lines. It changes the magnetic charge of the cause block at the end of an undesirable pattern line—ideally drawing a different, healthier response. When you first wear Rhodochrosite, you might find that you have a greater awareness of your undesirable actions and that these actions no longer feel like your most comfortable response to a certain situation. In other words, you may feel as though you’ve outgrown a particular response. For a while, you may continue to react as you always have. However, as time goes on, you will naturally begin to respond to the same cause in a different way. This will be the beginning of building a new, more uplifting and harmonious pattern.
Emotional patterns resemble an incorrectly assembled puzzle that has been sitting around and collecting dust between its pieces. When the puzzle is shaken up, the dust flies. Emotional patterns behave in a similar way. When unhealthy emotional patterns are formed, they tend to collect miscellaneous and undesirable energies—in other words, emotional "dust." When Rhodochrosite is worn, its energy sweeps across your emotional fabric, shaking up these unhealthy patterns and cleansing the dust from them.
When the dust has cleared, your emotional strengths will be revealed. These are the strengths that have been buried beneath the dust of emotional confusion and the needless emotional energies that clutter one’s life. This dust obscures emotional clarity and undermines clear emotional expression. When Rhodochrosite has cleared away the dust and debris, it rebuilds the puzzle so that all the pieces fit together correctly.
Rhodochrosite is a tool that can change your life. When patterns are highlighted, worked on, and given perspective by Rhodochrosite, they can provide the lessons needed to master life. Working with therapeutic quality Rhodochrosite will give you the opportunity to arise newborn in a new arena, where you can be the master of your own destiny.
The Influence of Patterns on Health
Emotional patterns feed energy into the physical body like lasers. The amount and type of energy fed depends on the attitude or feeling associated with the pattern. If the attitude is one of hurt, anger, fear, or anything else negative, then this is exactly what will be aimed at the physical body. If enough of these negative emotional energies are fed into the body, a weak spot will develop, and physical disharmony and disease will result. Rhodochrosite can help you stop feeding your physical body with disharmonious energies by resolving the underlying negative patterns and by creating new, positive patterns.
Rhodochrosite will also make pattern lines more flexible. When pattern lines become rigid, they restrict the flow of life force to related areas in the physical body, thereby weakening the areas. When you wear Rhodochrosite, your pattern lines will begin to loosen until they move with your breath, thus allowing more life force to flow wherever it is needed.
Rhodochrosite mobilizes, encourages, and motivates you to change your patterns. At the same time, its energy instills you with self-confidence. As your patterns begin to change, you will become stronger. The realizations that you can change your emotions, patterns, and reactions— and with them, your life— will also give you tremendous self-confidence. Some people who wear Rhodochrosite feel this greater self-confidence almost immediately. Others may need to experience several behavioral changes before this new confidence is felt. Consequently, at first they may be a little unsure of themselves. Continuing to wear the Rhodochrosite will eventually build their self-confidence.
Healing Inner Conflict
At every moment, each of us is subject to the myriad influences, perspectives, and desires of our inner and outer aspects. Somehow we must manage the simultaneous demands of our physical, emotional, karmic, mental, and intuitive bodies as they strive to be expressed through our consciousness and actions. We manage this task by sorting through all these influences and categorizing them in some way. When, for some reason, our consciousness cannot categorize all these influences, inner conflicts develop. As the years go by, this collection of uncategorized influences grows, leading to a perpetual state of unresolved conflict. This conflict manifests as areas of tightness and stiffness in the physical body.
Rhodochrosite helps the physical body resolve the conflicts created by all the inner and outer influences trying to manifest through it. It encourages the physical and subtle bodies to work together with a singular focus as an integrated whole. In this way, Rhodochrosite affects the way we express ourselves and the very way we live.
The Benefits of Rhodochrosite Rondel Necklaces
Different sizes of Rhodochrosite gemstones resonate with different levels of your being. Therefore, a necklace of graduated Rhodochrosite rondels, which contain many different sizes, is able to affect many levels simultaneously.
In a graduated Rhodochrosite rondel necklace, the sizes change in small increments from gem to gem. This gradual change allows the gemstones’ energies to work together harmoniously as a single, unified field. Moreover, the rondel shape facilitates smooth and gentle coordination between the gems.
The effect is like a seamless series of musical notes that sound as one. You may experience this as a gentle ripple effect, as though the gems’ energy is moving through you in a wave made up of many small waves. Graduated Rhodochrosite rondels work more harmoniously together in a necklace than graduated spheres, since the Rhodochrosite spheres create larger, stronger, and more individualized waves.
This unified effect is different from the one produced by a Rhodochrosite necklace with several contrasting sizes of gems placed either side by side or randomly in the necklace. Such a necklace can sound too many different “notes” at once for the body to process without strain.
The energy of a graduated Rhodochrosite rondel necklace moves through your field gently and holistically. Its many small waves will reach your emotional body simultaneously, breaking up emotional patterns across your entire emotional spectrum. In this way, its work may be stronger and more effective than a necklace containing only one size of Rhodochrosite. Both necklaces will get the job done, but a necklace of graduated rondels will tend to do so more thoroughly and quickly. Its coordinated action is powerful and balanced.
Caution: Start Slowly
We recommend going slowly when you start wearing a solid necklace of graduated Rhodochrosite rondels. For the first week, wear it for no more than several hours a day, gradually increasing the time as you become accustomed to its energy and the changes it initiates.
Our new Rhodochrosite rondel necklaces are exceptionally high in quality, with rich pink color and a jelly-like translucency. Rhodochrosite’s characteristic white bands, which can sometimes diminish its jelly-like appearance, are barely visible in these rondels, and their regular distribution supports the even delivery of gems’ powerful energy.
Rhodochrosite occurs in a wide range of clarity from opaque rock to opalescent gem. If you imagine this range as a vertical line, at the very top is Rhodochrosite that is so translucent that the entire sphere displays opalescence; at the bottom is Rhodochrosite that is so rock-like and dense that its vibrations cannot reach beyond the physical level. Rhodochrosite that is rock-like or that contains rock matrix or any other foreign material, such as brown or black spots or blemishes, is not therapeutic.
Although therapeutic Rhodochrosite exhibits a wide range of clarity, its color falls within a relatively narrow spectrum—from watermelon- and rose-pink on one end to orange-pink on the other. The deeper and more vibrant the color of the Rhodochrosite, the more powerful its effects will be.
Therapeutic quality Rhodochrosite can be divided into four quality grades: Fine, Very Fine, Exquisite, and Exquisite-Plus:
Fine-quality Rhodochrosite displays the minimum parameters for therapeutic quality and thus will support Rhodochrosite’s therapeutic mission. It contains some white bands or spots and some mildly translucent areas.
Very Fine has fewer white bands or patches of white than Fine quality and is clearly translucent or even somewhat opalescent.
Exquisite-quality Rhodochrosite has very few bands or patches of white. It is opalescent and translucent.
Exquisite-Plus is free or nearly free of white and is in an altogether different league. It is the most translucent and opalescent. The crystalline matrix of Exquisite-Plus Rhodochrosite is a whisper of physicality. It does not recognize the difference between the physical, emotional, and mental bodies and therefore works with each of them equally and with the knowledge that each is a part of your whole being. Other therapeutic quality Rhodochrosite must focus on one level at a time, whereas Exquisite-Plus can work on all aspects at once.
To produce the most profound changes, therapeutic quality Rhodochrosite spheres 8 mm or larger are required. Smaller sizes will take longer to initiate Rhodochrosite’s effects, and the effects may not be as deep or far-reaching.
When working with Rhodochrosite, high quality is essential; the higher the quality, the better the results. Indeed, the more translucent the Rhodochrosite, the faster and more powerfully it will work.
My early childhood was lived with a schizophrenic mother. Needless to say, even as an adult, my first response to anything unpredictable was fight or flight. Wearing Rhodochrosite is like wearing an Aha! necklace. Now, when something happens, I see my pattern and then have a choice whether to change it. I believe that, after years of therapy, using this gem is what helped me shift to living a happier and healthier life.

The first thing I noticed after wearing my Rhodochrosite was that I was getting my work done more quickly and getting home earlier in the day. I was spending more time doing things I liked to do. About a month later, I ordered a Rhodonite necklace and started wearing it. About four months after that, I stopped taking medication for depression, and it actually worked! For the first time in 20 years, I am functioning normally without a prescription. Thank you!

Wear It Around Your Neck
One of the most powerful and convenient ways to use a Rhodochrosite necklace is to wear it around your neck. There the gems will silently work for you as you go about your day. At night while you are sleeping, you can wear the necklace or keep it within three feet of your body to maintain your connection with the gems.
For maximum effectiveness, Rhodochrosite should be worn in a necklace that falls near the heart.
Rhodochrosite can also be used for more focused treatments. The simplest treatment is to place it on a specific area of your body to focus its healing energies there. For example, you can curl up the necklace and place it on an ailing, injured, or painful area to accelerate the area’s recovery.
A necklace of Rhodochrosite spheres is applied to the ears and brow chakra to help develop inner hearing. This therapy enhances the ability to hear the nonphysical sounds expressed in all of life's manifestations, including plants and gemstones.
This therapy helps release any mental resistance to the positive changes initiated by wearing a Rhodochrosite necklace. It also releases inner resistance to healthful changes in the spine and therefore acts as an excellent pre-treatment for any spine therapy.
A Rhodochrosite necklace is placed on a localized area of tightness, injury, or other disharmony to help the body resolve the underlying inner conflicts associated with the area. By clearing these inner conflicts, this therapy sets the stage for a deeper physical healing to occur.
During the initial phase of working with Rhodochrosite, it should be worn 24 hours a day. At night, you can wear it or keep it close to you in bed. As long as the Rhodochrosite stays within your aura, it will continue to work for you.
This initial phase may take two to six months. By then, you will have attained greater emotional balance. Enough pattern lines will have been resolved, and enough new ones will have been formed that you may feel like you are starting a new life. You will have a new attitude about yourself and your health. Also, by this time—if other therapies have been properly supporting your physical body—you will probably feel much better physically and have made much progress in your physical healing. All these changes will indicate that the initial phase of Rhodochrosite's work is completed.
In the next phase, continue to wear the Rhodochrosite for at least a few hours every day. If you wish, you may keep it next to you while you sleep, so it can continue working with you through the night.
Focusing Rhodochrosite with Mental Intention
A mental declaration of the specific reason you are wearing Rhodochrosite will strongly focus the gemstones’ action on the patterns associated with that issue. For example, you could mentally declare that you are wearing Rhodochrosite to change the patterns affecting your digestive system. You should periodically remind yourself of your intent as you wear the necklace. This will enhance the action of the necklace for your intended purpose.
If no mental direction is given, the Rhodochrosite will work in a somewhat holistic manner. It will find the longest pattern lines with the most emotion and negative attitudes associated with them, and it will work on those first.
Rhodonite and Rhodochrosite
It is no coincidence that Rhodonite and Rhodochrosite have similar names. Wearing Rhodonite can help balance Rhodochrosite’s power. When you are undergoing the great changes that Rhodochrosite can initiate, Rhodonite can establish a foundation of emotional and physical stability.
Cleanse Rhodochrosite Regularly
To maintain their effectiveness, therapeutic gemstones need regular care. As the gems help us release energetic impurities, some of these energies cling to the gems’ surface and inhibit their ability to work at their peak capacity. A simple energetic cleansing will clear these energies and restore the gems to their naturally vibrant state. You can use any of following methods to cleanse your Rhodochrosite necklace. Learn more about these methods.
Plant Rejuvenation: 2 – 3 times a week, wrap the necklace around the base of a healthy houseplant or lay the necklace in its branches.
Salt Bed: 2 – 3 times a week, lay the gems in a half-inch of salt for at least an hour or overnight. Place a thin natural-fiber cloth between the salt and the gems.
Sunbath: Every 1 - 2 weeks, lay the gems in sunlight for a maximum of one hour at a time.
Special Notes: Avoid rinsing and clay cleansing, which will dull Rhodochrosite’s polish.
Store the necklace separately to protect the Rhodochrosite, which is a particularly soft gem.
When Your Necklace First Arrives
When you put on a new necklace or one you haven’t worn for a while, bring it into your aura with consciousness and a clear intent. We call this “practicing presence.” By opening yourself to the gems’ energies and consciously cooperating with the process of change, you can greatly enhance the gemstones’ benefits.
