Rhodochrosite occurs as a manganese mineral in the silver mines.
Rhodochrosite's powers include drawing love to the wearer and it helps to release past psychological issues. Like other pink stones, it is often associated with matters of the heart. It inspires forgiveness, heals emotional scars, and attracts love. It also helps one face reality and new situations. Rhodochrosite is thought to relieve stress and is used by healers to cleanse the aura. It is said to improve eyesight. The Incas believed that it is the blood of their former kings and queens that was turned to stone.
Rhodochrosite is found in Argentina, Peru, and Romania. The Sweet Home Mine near Alma, Colorado produces the highly prized and rare red crystals which are found only in a few places on earth.
