Hematite, one of the best grounding and balancing stones, has an incredible centering and calming effect. This is because this crystal emanates intense, but subtle, vibrations and activates the Root Chakra, the energy center responsible for anchoring you to the earth and provide stability.
Physical properties of Hematite
This mineral form of iron oxide is the oldest known mineral that abundantly exists in soils and rocks. Although harder than pure iron, it is much more brittle.
As far as its appearance is concerned, its color ranges from red to reddish-brown to steel gray to black. One thing found common in all forms of Hematite is a rust-red streak. This red streak is the high iron content contained in this crystal.
It comes as no surprise that Greeks used to grind this stone to produce red pigment. Probably, it is the blood red color of the pigment that prompted the Greeks to call it ‘haima’, Latin for blood.
In olden times, the ancient English warriors used Hematite as a powerful talisman, as they believed it would not let the blood or the life essence drain out of them, if they ever get wounded in battle.
Benefits of Hematite
There are numerous benefits provided by Hematite. Let’s see what they are:
● Healing: This stone heals the body by cleansing the blood and improving blood circulation. It also rejuvenates the nervous system, making you refreshed and more energetic.
