Today's pendant.... a stunning piece of rhodonite hand wrapped in leather. It's 2 1/4 x 1 1/2 inches. I've said it before and I'll say it again... leather wrapping a stone makes for a bold statement, without any weight. This is a really beautiful pendant.
It does not come with a slide or chain necklace.
RHODONITE ~ the anxiety and fear diffuser stone.
Rhodonite is derived from the Greek word rhodon, meaning "rose". In ancient times this stone was used as a protective stone for travelers. The healing properties it is associated with are; it can improve cardiac deficiencies at an early stage and tone up the respiratory tract and lungs. It has a stimulating effect on sexuality(thank goodness for the first), strengthens the immune system, helps to protect against allergies, and staves off primeval fears and phobias. If you are having a hard time dealing with changing circumstances, this stone will aid you in keeping a clear and calm mind in tense situations. Rhodonite is known as the first aid stone and symbolizes self realization. This stone is especially effective on the heart and sacral chakra and is usually associated with Taurus. You can discharge this stone by holding it under running water and recharge it by placing it out in the sun for a few hours.
