Hematite

SOLD

Whilst Hematite is a common stone, and can be found in jewellery in the form of polished beads, it is very rare to find it set in sterling silver as with this pendant.

Hematite is Iron Oxide and takes its name from the Greek work for blood, 'haima'. At first glance this may not be an obvious name; with its silvery appearance, but in its powdery form it is blood red! Following a mineralogical expedition to Mars in 1996, both fine- and coarse-grained Hematite was found on the planet. Fine-grained Hematite is red in colour, with coarse-grained being silvery grey. It is the fine-grained Hematite being blown around during the seasonal Martian dust storms which gives Mars its characteristic red hue, giving rise to it being called ‘The Red Planet’.
 
Legend has it that Hematite formed in the ground from the spilt blood of wounded warriors in ancient battles; their spirits imbuing the crystal with protective properties never afforded to their bodies as mortals. And this is indeed a wonderfully protective stone, sending low-vibration and negative energies back to their source.  It is also a super grounding stone.

Approximate size (including the bail): H50mm x W22mm
