The name for the Rhodochrosite stone comes from the Greek word rhodon meaning rose as well as chroma which means color. The Incas believed that Rhodochrosite is the blood of their ancestors. These Incas believed that former kings and queens would return to life as these stones. The stone is also known as the Inca Rose given its colors and appearance. Rhodochrosite is known to strengthen self-identity. It helps heal deep emotional trauma and balances with a loving vibration.
