Argentinian Rhodochrosite bead in a pillow shape.
Rhodochrosite metaphysical properties:
Great balancing crystal. If you don't use it for making jewelry, it is just the right size for placing over your stomach area to benefit your pancreas, spleen and kidneys or along those same acupuncture meridians. Works great as part of a necklace or bracelet, balances your being on all levels.
Great for a detox program, especially for those concerned with diabetes.
Balance your emotions and restore a proper sense of self and identity in the world. Just put in in a glass of water and sip your water through a straw. Mentally, this crystal helps you move from a negative thought to a more positive awareness.
Often recommended for narcolepsy.
Physically, place in it in your bath, again over abdomen. Or have a massage therapist place it over the lumbar portion of your spine.
To improve level of positive thinking, or for Narcoleptics, expose the bead to orange light for 8 to 10 minutes and then wear. Even better if placed in a titanium or copper pyramid form for half an hour after the orange light exposure. (Titanium pyramid structures are available in our store site.)
Great as a focal bead in a necklace. Bead measures 1-1/3 inches long by 15/16 inch wide by 1/5 inch thick. Drilled vertically, top to bottom.
Rhodochrosite is pink when it crystallizes with calcium instead of iron carbonate.
Meaning: The Incans believed their rulers' blood turned into crystal when they died, which was the rhodochrosite.
