One of the most beautiful and powerful stones in the collection, the Kokoa Ring (Japanese; meaning "love of the heart") is Rhodochrosite set in 14k gold filled. One of a kind, handmade.
I bought this stone from a young traveling man playing guitar, and selling his handmade jewelry and stones on the street in Ventura, California. It was a magical day, and talking to him was one of the highlights of my trip. A piece that is hard to part with, but will bring unlimited joy and love to whoever connects with it.
The allure of Rhodochrosite is undeniable, both for its raspberry-pink to rose-red color, and for the pulsating electrical energy of love it emits. While all pink stones promote unconditional love, Robert Simmons in The Book of Stones claims Rhodochrosite emanates one of the most tender and loving energies of any stone, soothing the heart, comforting the soul, and vibrating to the frequencies of inner peace. It is a marvelous talisman of joy and healing, of embracing one’s rightful powers and rising to one’s full potential. Connection to the Solar Plexus Chakra, Rhodochrosite frees blockages in this chakra, forming a vital bridge between the upper chakras of higher consciousness and the lower chakras of energy, restoring one’s sense of wholeness and confidence to use one’s will in creating one’s reality.
