Grounding and Logic
Hematite is the mineral form of iron oxide. It's the oldest known iron oxide mineral that has ever formed on earth and is widespread in rocks and soils. When found in nature, it will be rough and red, but once polished, it takes on a beautiful, mirror-like sheen. It is made mainly of iron, which gives it its metallic sheen.
The name hematite is derived from the Greek word for blood αἷμα haima, due to the red colouration found in some varieties of hematite. The English name of the stone is derived from Middle French: Hématite Pierre, which was imported from Latin: Lapis Hæmatites around the 15th century, which originated from Ancient Greek: αἱματίτης λίθος (haimatitēs lithos, "blood-red stone").
This stone is associated with the earth, and it is one of the best stones that you can use to harness the power of the element of earth to lend you strength and dispel negativity.
The main property of Hematite could be described as "grounding". If you are prone to distraction, lack of focus, or anxiety, this could be the perfect stone for you. Hematite will give you an increased ability to focus your mind in a productive way, rather than becoming psychically distracted.
With the simple act of bringing you back down to earth, Hematite calms a troubled mind by giving you the focus and clarity you need to be the boss at whatever you do.
Earth is the element that rules the physical world, money, practical thinking, and decision making. Specifically, hematite is a powerful stone for organising one's thoughts and developing logical thinking skills.
It is best known for its positive effects in business and career fields, but it can also be helpful in your romantic relationships, your family life, your spiritual development, and your general perspective towards yourself.
When it comes to interpersonal relationships – whether romantic, familial or just friendly or social – this is the perfect stone for keeping you far away from “drama.”
From a spiritual and emotional perspective, hematite is an excellent stone for fostering gratitude for what you have.
Hematite can absorb any toxic emotions holding you back from your natural state of joy and vitality. It will clear away negative feelings from stress, worry and anxiety.
Hematite is also excellent for healing the body because it cleanses the blood and supports circulation.
