      Known historically as the "bloodstone", this stone got its name for the Greek word for blood, "haima" due to its naturally occurring reddish tones (which dissipate once smelted). This iron-rich stone is deeply grounding and connected to the earth. Due to these grounding properties, Hematite has been known to facilitate growth and change in people that had issues with: lacking personal boundaries, feeling unsafe, being overly cautious, inability to stand up for themselves, or feeling unbalanced. Hematite is connected to the Root Chakra and has a profoundly grounding energy that reminds us of our human existence and supports us financially. It can also be used to alleviate stress and anxiety. People use this stone to increase blood circulation, reduce high blood pressure, reduce clotting, and even slow heavy menstrual periods. Hematite heightens the magnetic attraction of our yin-yang energies to balance the energies within our bodies and provides a stable equilibrium between the ethereal nervous system and the physical nervous system. It focuses energy and emotions for balance between the body, mind and spirit.
