Hematite Ore

Introduction to Hematite

Hematite is a form of iron that is found all around the world. Colors range red to reddish-brown to black. It can be formed as a result of volcanic activity or precipitate out of water. Its name comes from the Greek word haima for the red coloration in some varieties.

Interesting fact: This crystal is found in abundance on Mars as small spherical type shapes.

Specularite is the same as hematite with the addition of small dots of mica. This gives the stone the appearance of a starry night sky. 

This stone is closely associated with Aquarius and Aries birth signs.

Hematite Meaning

Hematite is the stone for grounding & mental clarity. It can help your mind stay focused and organized when thoughts seem to be racing out of control. It will also help you release excessively strong emotions.

If you are also needing a nudge in the self-esteem department, this is definitely the stone to turn to to get that confidence going! Dwelling on past mistakes is a frequent killer of self-esteem. Hematite enables you to learn from the mistakes to avoid them in the future.
