When you wear Hematite, it helps you feel balanced, calm and centered. This stone helps you to find your own, unique talents, releasing self-imposed limitations.
IGS (International Gem Society) Hematite was used by the American Indians and others as a face paint (so-called red ochre). The polishing compound known as rouge, used widely on silver and gold, is powdered hematite. The streak is characteristic and diagnostic. Hematite is a weak electrical conductor, as opposed to psilomelane, a similar appearing manganese oxide. Much hematite is cut in Idar-Oberstein, Germany, but the material comes from England. Hematite is simulated by a variety of materials. One of these, known as hematine, is a mixture of stainless steel with sulfides of Cr and Ni. It has a red streak but is quite magnetic, whereas hematite is not. Hematine is made into intaglios and cameos. Etymology: From the Greek hema (blood), due to the red streak (powder) and appearance of some specimens.
