Crystal Information

With its name coming from the Greek “rhodon”, which means rose, this crystal has more than color in common with this well known flower. The rose is thought by cultures across the globe to be a symbol of the divine. Associated with universal love and divine work, many think the scent of the rose is left behind when help from angels has been received. The theory is they select the rose as a calling card due to the rose being the highest vibrating plant- as much as five times higher than other plants. This isn’t just something that we claim, it is measured with actual science and comes in at 320 Hz significantly higher than other plants. 

There is more than just the high frequency of the flower that makes it the perfect form of communication, such beauty can be found in how it grows. This is where we find the meaning of our crystal in question as well. As the rose sprouts from the ground, it does so from sparse stick like branches, branches that develop pointy and sort of dangerous looking thorns. As the plant grows taller we see leaves grow on these sticks of doom, but they are not overly inviting looking leaves they are sort of jagged and not really soothing. As the plant grows more, it develops many of these branches and they are intriguing to look at. Upon gazing at them we are sort of called to look deeper and follow the intermingled mess of dull colored twigs until eventually they sprout tiny buds that break through the dull and dreary bush like base. Once these buds appear the entire plant transforms. The leaves hold a bit more color, the thorns seem a little less ominous and the beauty and perfection of even the tiniest hint of a flower is undeniable. As that flower begins to open, an even greater beauty is revealed. A completely unexpected captivating beauty sprouts from those pointy sticks. Little by little it unfolds from its compact state growing more unbelievably stunning as it blossoms and becomes the rose we all know. Unfolding layers of petals in order to become what it was intended to be. This journey from the dirt to the flower is why this plant is said to be the work of the divine.

The journey the rose takes draws a parallel to our own journey and the idea that sometimes the most beautiful things grow from unexpected places. We just need to peel back the layers. Those thorns were needed to protect the plant so that it could grow and develop the way it needed to. So too do we need all of our experiences in order to become our best self. Rhodonite aligns us with our own journey so that we can see that even our thorns contribute to our great beauty. A stone associated with love, and deep emotional healing; it works so well to connect us to the purpose of our experiences so that we may embrace all that we are and everything that helped us become the us we know today. It also allows us to see that we are never done growing. Just as the one rose will die, a new one will sprout. There are always new transformations blooming, even when we don’t realize it. This crystal promotes an awareness of ourselves and our connection to the divine. Providing the supportive knowing that we are never alone, and we have all we need to grow and flourish if only we look within.
