Quite a strange stone indeed, Hematite is sold as a heavy, silvery metallic black luster and bulbous shape, with an inner core stained the color of blood.
Ancient texts tell us that this stone was what was once called ‘Bloodstone’, although not the Bloodstone we know of today.
Often in modern times, what is often called Hematite (or Hemalyke), is actually an imitation substance that is (or should be) referred to as Hematine. Hematine is made of stainless steel, chromium and nickel sulfides. Hematine resembles Hematite to such a degree that visually it is difficult to discern the difference. However, it is the imitator Hematine that is magnetic, not the natural Hematite. Most Marcasite these days is crafted by faceting Hematite, as actual Marcasite tends to dissolve or erode quickly when exposed to the air.
Mohs Hardness of 6.5 with a trigonal crystal structure.
Hematite generally occurs as a massive opaque material with a metallic luster, showing an incredible blood red color when cut or ground. It may however, also occur as short, black rhombohedral crystals as well, and may have iridescent surfaces.
When the minerals are arranged like petals on a flower, it is called an “Iron Rose”, and exceptionally shy crystals were once referred to as “Specular” Hematite, which has no reference to Specularite/Labradorite as a mineral. It is found mainly in Canada around Lake Superior, also in Brazil, Venezuela, and England.
Besides Hematites association with blood and healing, it is also known as a ‘stone for the mind’, or a ‘stone of the higher mind’, as it brings one incredible grounding and calm helping one to focus and organize the mind. Assisting in original thought, logical thinking as well as mathematics, it acts well as a firm stabilizing force.
Hematite is an excellent stone to have with one when being bombarded with multiple energies of people, stones and crystals or environmental substances as it will attract, negate, and dissipate negative energies from all around.
Hematite utilizes the magnetic qualities of our yin-yang energies to balance the meridians within the body and to provide a stable equilibrium between the ethereal nervous system and the physical nervous system
Related to the blood, Hematite is used to assist in ailments related to blood circulation, as well as the treatment of diseases such as anemia or embolisms. Told to assist one’s body in the absorption of iron into the small intestine, this in turn improves the oxygen supply to one’s body, increasing blood flow.
Use Hematite to reduce bloodshot eyes, headaches, and to stave off heat stroke.
Hematite should not be cleansed or discharged with water, as it may weaken the stone itself, rather place it among Rock Crystal or Salt. Hematite will release the negative energy it has collected and at the same time be recharged with positive energies.
Due to the strength of the negative absorbing properties of Hematite, it may also be used to cleanse and clear other gemstones as well.

Spiritual Healer & Stone of Wisdom
One of the first gemstones to be mined, Turquoise has long been prized for its intense colors, which vary greatly from sky blue to green, depending on the quantities of iron and copper found in it.
Turquoise is a complicated and persnickety gemstone say some as just the right type of minerals must be in just the right place for a very very long time (millions of years) before Turquoise is finally created.
Egyptians prized Turquoise as a Life Stone. The oldest pieces of jewelry set with this gem are four bracelets found on the mummified arm of Queen Zar. She was the ruler of Egypt in about 5500 BC.
Highly revered in Tibet, a Turquoise stone was carried throughout one’s entire life. It was exchanged as currency & the finest stones were considered more valuable than gold.
Mohs Hardness of 6 with a triclinic crystal structure.
Copper is key to beginning the process of creating Turquoise. The mineral is introduced into host rocks by heated magma rising to the earth’s surface. Hydrothermal actions created by the heat of the magma will break down nearby feldspar, releasing aluminum. Phosphoric acids leach from apatites (rocks not usually found near copper deposits) leaving the needed phosphorus.
Just getting past this complicated process will not be enough . . . the host stones must also stay above the water table for millions of years. As Mother Earth heaved & cooled, mountains rose, seas formed & disappeared, these deposits of copper, aluminum & phosphorus had to remain under great pressures & stay dry.
Almost all Turquoise is found in areas with volcanic or thermal histories and the finest grades of the gem are found closest to the earth’s surface. The stone must be able to “dry out” in order to maintain it’s hardness. Deeper deposits of Turquoise become soft because of acids created as water percolates through the earth.
One of the exceptions to this is the Lone Mountain Mine in Nevada. This rich deposit of Turquoise was sent deep into Mother Earth after seismic activity caused the deposit to fault.
Turquoise is found around the world. Its history as a spiritual stone goes back over 7500 years. Persian Turquoise is considered some of the finest in the world (& some of the earliest mines). China, North & South America, Saudia Arabia, Tibet also have significant deposits of this gem. Virginia has an extremely rare Turquoise that forms in prismatic crystals.
Turquoise is still a valued power stone. It will strengthen and align all of the Chakras, and it can be used to cleanse your energy centers. As a meditation tool, the gem can assist in clearing your mind, opening you to the Universal All. Use Turquoise to attune to the spiritual plane or provide protection during vision quests or astral travel.
Native Americans believed the stone brought protection to a rider upon a horse, and great protection in general, especially to turn away the evil eye.
Called “sky stone” or “stone of heaven” by some Native Americans, the vibrations of turquoise can build a spiritual bridge between worlds and give strong psychic powers to the bearer.
Turquoise is considered to be a symbol of generosity, sincerity, and affection. It preserves friendships and can make friends out of enemies in time. Traditionally it is said to only bring good luck if given, not purchased. However, this is not always the case. One must take into consideration the innate energy of each stone individually.
Turquoise was part of the medical equipment of most physicians of the fifteenth century; the claim was that this stone could counteract the effects of any poison.
A master healer and a stone of yin (feminine) energy, turquoise is most helpful with female disorders. Also used to prevent and cure headaches. A strong stone for toning and strengthening the entire body and regenerating tissue.
It’s best known for it’s drawing powers. When pressed against the diseased or troubled portion of the body, the illness is then visualized as being drawn into the stone and out of the body, thus removing it all together.
Tradition says that this stone reflects the health of the body and the aura by changing color.
