Rhodonite is the complimentary stone to Rhodochrosite, but deals on a much more cerebral level, by helping improve memory, calming the mind, easing stress by boosting self-confidence. It helps you deal with the pressures of modern living. It is also said to keep emotions grounded, encourages forgiveness, helps with relationship problems, sometimes called the rescue stone, it brings emotional healing and compassion, while also helping to release fear.
There are very few legends that cross over cultures and times the way the crystal skull legends do. They are contemporarily shared by the Mayans, The Aztecs, the Native Americans and other indigenous people around the world (and in philosophical terms, they are recorded in Atlantean and Lemurian Times). These legends have been handed down from generation to generation for thousands of years, which attests to their enduring power. Crystal skulls are amplifiers and generators of energy, and also store information like computers. A new crystal skull is much like a new computer – it is only imprinted with basic programs of the energetic properties of the stone it is carved from. It has also absorbed energies from the carver, and from anyone who has handled it. Crystal skulls can be imprinted with this energy simply by contact, and they can also be programmed with intention and consciousness. A lot of them even possess their own unique spiritual personalities.
They are our spiritual partners to help us, just as we help them. Don't just place your crystal skull on a shelf once you get it, as this may make them upset. Bond with them, meditate with them, talk to them, as you will come to notice they are very much alive in their own unique spiritual way. Take great care of them, by always remembering to talk to them, acknowledge them, and store them in a sacred space upon an altar or center of attention place within a room. Partner with them for energy/crystal healing, crystal grid work, magical workings, and lots more. Listen to them, as they may reveal their name to you, but if not, you may always name them yourself too.
