Toni’s Rhodochrosite speaks of compassion, blessings, love and joy. “It is through our relationships with others that we learn more about our own character.  From a higher perspective, everyone we encounter is a reflection of ourselves and the universe has placed around us the things that will help us expand our love and tolerance.  We meet people we like and people we dislike.  When we see what we consider to be positive traits in others, we align with these characteristics because we believe them to be good. Yet when we see what we consider to be negative aspects in others characters, we refuse to see those same traits in ourselves because we judge them as bad.  Yet the truth is that we have each trait within us, either currently or in the past, otherwise we would not be able to recognize those traits in another. “
