Hematite: Let your Calm Circulate


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:)

@T.A.M. This is one of the roughest years for me. I've been having a heck of a time getting back to normal.

Okay that hematite looks like some kind of super metal, like if you put it on a belt or something, you'd have super powers... dope. As are your designs!

@ Denene, yes I once worked a festival where there was a booth that sold nothing but really simple and kinda ugly hematite bracelets for $25. They sold like crazy based on a sign that told folks all about the medicinal and spiritual properties.
