Hematite is a mineral that is beautiful to look at because of its iridescence and gunmetal glow , but it also known for its medicinal properties. It is closely associated with healing anything related to blood. That includes heart disease, hemophilia, menstrual cramps ( yes ladies, menstrual cramps), nose bleeds, anemia and other related blood problems. Native Americans even believed this mineral was good for dental problems and pimples (who knew).
It is also believed to be good for drawing stress out of your body, and calming mental energy. Hematite is also said to be good for relieving anger and neutralizing negativity. If you have had any stressful moments during this holiday season surrounding family, in-laws, long lines at Target, running out of money for gifts, burning the turkey ham, veggie turkey, or turkey, returning a horrid gift, or any other holiday stress, I suggest wearing a little hematite. It should return you to your normal peaceful state
or least to your pre-holiday state. This is a stone that both men and women enjoy, so buy it as a gift or get some for yourself.
Here are some hematite pieces I've made recently. I sold a great bracelet before I had the opportunity to snap a photo, you'll have to take my word for it:)
