Rhodizite is found in Madagascar and Russia, and usually in the presence of Tourmaline. It is a well known mineral/crystal in the metaphysical world. Rhodizite is said to be an amplifier of our thoughts, words, actions, emotions and hence all vibrations in our environment. It is one of the top five healing crystals and said to be a Master Healer that never needs cleaning. Rhodizite absorbs energy direct from our Sun and supposedly retains these solar vibrations within its crystalline matrix.
