The name hematite finds its roots from the greek name aematitis lithos, meaning blood stone, for the red color it displays when in the form of powder.
Hematite forms in small nodular shapes and once polished produces a beautiful almost metallic finish. This metallic finish occurs since the stone is an iron ore, the stone itself is over 70% iron. Don't worry though, hematite cannot rust.
Hematite is found in a variety of locations in Canada including Quebec, Ontario, British Columbia and the Yukon Territory. The nickname for hematite is "Black Diamond".
Hematite is used to ground yourself to Earth so that your knowledge gained through spiritual journeys can be brought back to daily life easily. Hematite can help with original and logical thought, as well as reduce anxiety in the body.
