The name of this spectacular stone derives from the Greek word for “blood” and is a protective red coloured rock-forming oxide mineral that is found in many locations around the world. The largest deposit of Hematite is currently found in Lake Superior District in North America. Hematite has the ability to absorb any toxic and negative emotions holding us back from our natural state of joy and prevents us from attracting it from others. This strong, grounding crystal boosts self-esteem and survivability, which brings out inner power, reliability and confidence. You find Hematite a great crystal to have with you when you need to get rid of feeling of stress and worry during meditation work and to keep the flow of energy from your higher chakras. Using this crystal during meditation also strengthens our connection with the earth, making us feel safe and secure and pulls any negative energy in the aura to the Root Chakra where it neutralizes its harmful effects by balancing and aligning all seven chakras.
