Hematite is used to improve relationships. If you need your personal relationship to be better, carry a hematite with you always. The name comes from the Greek word for blood. It has been used as an amulet against bleeding, and so is known as the “blood stone”.
Hematite is good for increasing intuition. In jewelry it is best in a ring worn on the left hand.
Hematite stimulates iron absorption in the small intestine, which in turn improves oxygen supply to the body. It can be in direct contact with the skin, but results in inflammation for some people, so test it carefully on yourself before use.
Physical Healing Properties: leg cramps, blood disorders, nervous disorders, and insomnia. Spinal alignment and the proper healing of bones, breaks, and fractures.
Hematite helps one sort out things in ones own mind, and can be useful for a mental “tune up”. It helps memory enhancement, original thinking and technical knowledge. Good stone for IT personnel.
A calming stone, but also offers support for your hopes, dreams, wishes and desires, by encouraging you to “reach for the sun”. Hematite reminds you that the only limitations that exist are those that you place upon yourself.
It helps to balance out the emotions and energies between the body, mind and spirit. Not only does it dissolve negativity, but actually transforms it into the energy of Universal Love.
