Hematite helps to absorb negative energy, and transform it into positive energy. It helps keep you calm and grounded in times of stress and worry. Carry Hematite with you when you're in need of balance and equilibrium, or whenever you're struggling to focus your energy. It's an excellent stone for when you're working with your Root chakra, and to protect from electromagnetic smog. Hematite is believed to be useful in legal matters, providing protection for difficult times, and possibly bring positive judgment.
Please note that Hematite may carry a small magnetic charge, so please consult your doctor if you have a pacemaker or something similar that could be impacted by a magnet.
