Hematite is an iron oxide mineral (not a crystal) with a very unique look that is hard to confuse with any other stone. The name hematite comes from the latin word “blood stone”, because when it’s found naturally and broken open, it has a layer of rust on the inside.
Hematite is probably the most common stone used to balance and calm people. This is because hematite is very grounding, and helps to keep the mind focused on the moment. This stone is considered to be closely related to the root chakra.
Since hematite is such a powerful grounding energy, it’s great to use when things are overwhelming or you feel like you can’t think straight.
