A great big hug of a stone - a source of comfort even in the harshest times.
Rhodocrocite represents self love and self acceptance. It has a very gentle calming energy and encourages you to see yourself clearly, without becoming scared or overwhelmed by your darker side, or perceived flaws.
It is a particularly good crystal for people who struggle with a sense of self-worth, and need a great deal of external support and self-validation. It encourages you to consider and identify your own needs, accept them as valid and express them openly. It helps smooth away feelings of powerlessness, dissociation and helps you build practices that will allow you to actualise things that seemed beyond your reach.
