The Hematite Crystal Pendulum with Magnetite is made from iron oxide.
Hematite absorbs negativity. Sends out positive energy. Protects, grounds, and calms. Enhances willpower, concentration, and assertiveness.
Restores, strengthens, and regulates blood circulation.
The Hematite pendulum is sometimes called Bloodstone because when scratched and dipped in water, Hematite can turn the water red.
Hematite is associated with the Root Chakra and is recommended for grounding, centering, mental clarity, concentration, and memory.
Hematite is considered a “protective” stone and is said to absorb or deflect negative energy while increasing confidence, self-esteem, and a positive outlook.
Folklore suggests that Hematite is associated with the spleen and blood circulation. The iron in Hematite influences the blood and is recommended for those with anemia. Hematite has a fortifying influence on the body and tends to increase physical energy.
Physically, Hematite is also used to protect against geopathic stress and electromagnetic smog, and is said to be a great detoxifying stone, helpful for the liver and the blood.
Due to Hematite’s “magnetic” properties, it’s suggested, if wearing the stone, to do so for a couple of hours at a time. Also, as a cautionary note, if you use a heart pacer check with your doctor to ensure the mild magnetic field won’t affect any electronic insert.
Michael Gienger states in his book HEALING CRYSTALS that Hematite with Magnetite encourages progress; promotes striving for improvement of one’s situation in life; helps pursue aims with determination and to fight for them if necessary; aids assimilation of iron and blood building; stimulates the glands, liver and gallbladder.
