Rhodonite is a master heart healer, making it an exceptional stone to work with after a loss or break-up. Rhodonite warms and balances the heart chakra, naturally mending old hurts and traumas. It promotes self-love and self-nurturing and teaches you how to let go of the past and begin looking to the future once more. Grief is truly nothing more than the healing process of the heart, and rhodonite is superior at aiding this process and opening you up to the love that remains all around you.
Tibetan Black Quartz
These little double-terminated quartzes are similar to the popular Herkimer diamonds because of their shape and clarity and tendency toward occlusions. To be Tibetan "black quartz" the crystals must reveal the characteristic black occlusions/inclusions, which can range from a small dot inside the crystal to a crystal that appears entirely black. They must also be mined in Tibet. However small they may come, don't let their size fool you. These little stones pack a powerful punch, and are excellent at drawing away negative emotions and influences as well as stabilizing you after a profound loss or change.
