Grounding – Balance – Zen

The world is a great mirror. It reflects back to you what you are.

– Thomas Dreier

Need to get out of your head for just a bit? Let hematite bring you back to earth and into your body. This grounding stone, whose name comes from the Greek word for blood, harmonises our yin-yang energies, bringing balance between the body, mind and spirit.

Our ancestors would ground up the precious stone to create a form of chalk. The deep red powder was used in ancient cave paintings and as war paint during Roman battles.

More than an art tool, you can see your reflection in polished hematite as if looking into a mirror. It is said that this ancient mirror protects your energy by sending low vibes back to the originator.
