MeritMade Stones - Hematite


Hematite is one of 2 stones we used in the upcoming Valentine's Mini Collection. Also spelled as Haematite, it is the mineral form of iron oxide (iron and oxygen) and is mined as the main source of iron. When it is turned to a powder, Hematite is a rusty red color. Through out history this red powder has been used on pottery, cave walls, and to pigment oil paints. Not strictly limited to planet earth, this amazing mineral also resides on MARS and is what gives Mars it's red color.

Martian Rocks: In 2004, NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity discovered that soil near its landing site contained millions of tiny spheres that researchers nicknamed "blueberries." Upon analysis they were determined to be composed of iron oxide, mostly in the form of hematite. Image by NASA.

Metaphysically speaking Hematite is a powerhouse. It is ENERGIZING, EMPOWERING, and GROUNDING.

It is used to bring mental organization and can help with original thinking, logical thinking, and mathematics. Basically any type of thinking which requires significant mental clarity, can benefit from the wearing of hematite.

Emotionally, hematite decreases negativity. Lowering negativity, helps balance the body/mind/spirit connection. It also is said to balance the meridians, boost self-esteem, and self-confidence.
