Hematite is the mineral form of Iron Oxide. The name comes from the Greek word, Haematite, for blood. It was used as an amulet against bleeding, and so was also known as a "blood stone".

Hematite grounds and protects.  It strengthens our connection with the earth.  It promotes courage, strength, endurance and vitality. Hematite stimulates concentration and focus, enhancing memory and thought.

Hematite uses the magnetic qualities of our yin-yang energies to balance the meridians within the body and to provide a stable equilibrium between the ethereal nervous system and the physical nervous system.  It focuses energy and emotions for balance between the body, mind and spirit.

Native American folklore states that war paint made from hematite will make one invincible in battle. People in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries wore hematite jewelry during mourning.

I use hematite tumbled stones for grounding after my meditation classes. It helps to ground the students and bring their focus back to the conscious mind.

(There are many different interpretations for the meanings & uses of stones. Here we offer some general info. but encourage you to work/meditate and find your own.)

Thank you for visiting. Wishing you Peace today and everyday.
