Crystals ~ Hematite

Psychicvisions Home Page


These silvery-grey stones can be polished to such a high sheen that long ago they were used as mirrors. Hematite's content is iron oxide, and because iron was traditionally associated with Mars, warriors used to rub their bodies with it in the belief that it would protect them.
Hematite is a protective stone, though perhaps not in the way the ancient Romans imagined it to be. It is particularly recommended for people who have difficulty in preventing themselves from absorbing the emotions of others. Those who have strong representations of Cancer and Pisces in their astrological charts are particularly likely to be emotional sponges, but others may also be vulnerable to this.
When we take on someone else's mood it's almost as if we've surrendered our will to that of someone else. Hematite, as a power stone whose purpose is to deepen the connection between spirit and body, helps us to keep our sense of self and sense of purpose firm. Its reflective quality symbolizes its ability to help deflect the emotions of others.
