Healing stones were one of the first things I was drawn to as I became more spiritually awakened. They are versatile and useful, and very pleasing to the eye.
Hematite was the first stone I ever gravitated towards instinctually. It is mainly used for grounding and protection. I essentially use it for protection but it can be used for many other things as well. It can even be used in the corners of a room or property to help protect and ward off negativity. Hematite is beneficial with mental organization and logical thinking. Emotionally it is calming and decreases negativity. It also has the capability to boost self-esteem. Physically it has been known to cool the body and blood disorders, along with lessening anxiety. Hematite is a wonderful stone, essential in any collection.
