Hematite is a crystalline form of iron oxide with a metallic pearly luster, often occurring naturally in hexagonal or rhombohedral formations in igneous rock strata.
Melody calls hematite "a stone for the mind", useful for memory enhancement, mental attunement, original thinking and enhanced concentration while studying and absorbing technical knowledge. Hematite is a "cooling stone", calming the mind and dispelling heat from the physical body. The electromagnetic qualities of hematite are useful for balancing the energy meridians and to equilibrate the interface between the etheric body and the physical nervous system.
Hematite transforms negativity into love, harmonizes and balances yin-yang energy within the energy body, and stimulates the desire for peace in one's life. Hematite promotes a grounded meditative state very helpful to those seeking to unite heaven and earth within themselves. Hematite is used by crystal healers to promote spinal alignment, and in treatment of broken and fractured bones.
