Hematite – To Fake or Not to Fake

I have always been drawn to the feeling Hematite brought, and with the weight of it in my pocket. I even found the artificially-magnetized hematite interesting as well (until I learned that it is NOT Hematite at all).  Hematite is made up of Iron Oxide. It is not the prettiest stone in its natural state.  New York City’s famous “Brownstone Fronts” were due to the Iron Oxide in the sandstone beds of the Connecticut Valley.  Polished Hematite takes on the look of a freshly buffed chrome bumper of an antique car.  This reflective quality is also part of the healing this stone brings; it aids us to reflect on ourselves.  We often spend time watching others, but how long do we spend watching ourselves?  Enter Hematite – the grounding and reflective stone.

Hematite comes from the Greek word for Red. Hematite was used to create red chalk for 1000’s of years which relates well to the red colour of our Root Chakra. The gravity of Hematite reminds us that we are all earth beings and connected through the Root Chakra with the Earth.  It is a wonderful stone to carry in your pocket, although your pants might fall down from the weight of this stone (it is quite heavy for its size).  Hematite was also used by Egyptians to protect tombs from tomb raiders. Hematite dust can be lethal if breathed in, so they covered the sarcophagus with hematite dust to stop thieves.

What is the difference of Magnetic and Non Magnetic Hematite?  The difference is that Hematite is not naturally found magnetized (actually, only a very small magnetic charge can be found within natural hematite) and only becomes this way through a mechanical process. The procedure includes heating and cooling the hematite while it is attached to very strong magnet.  Most often the Magnetized Hematite does not even include Hematite, but uses synthetic ceramic barium-strontium ferrite magnet and is polished to a silvery gleam.  Most manufacturers keep their formulas a trade secret.  Artificially or fake magnetized Hematite may not serve our highest good or expectation, but may offer a relief to the wearer.  Let me try to explain the health benefits of wearing a magnetic bracelet:

Short Term Healing Properties of wearing Magnetic Jewelry

I have a very simple explanation.  It is known that we have many heavy metals within our bodies circulating through our blood stream.  These heavy metals entered our bodies through either absorption of solvents (gasoline/varsol), inhalation from Factory Air Emissions known as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s), or by ingestion of foods.  Many species are not able to release these heavy metals (known as Bio-Accumulation). The compounded ingestion of Bio-Accumulated species is known as Bio-Magnification.


It is my belief that wearing a magnetized bracelet will make you feel better “temporarily”, as the heavy metals are attracted to the magnetic bracelet and concentrate in your wrist, thus no longer flowing throughout your bloodstream.  The removal of the bracelet allows the heavy metals to circulate again, and we will feel the ill effects of this toxic loading.  There are alternative measure for ridding the body of heavy metals, and one should research approved methods of Chelating Therapies.

Now Back to the Real Hematite:

The real connection of the Root Chakra with the Earth occurs through the Sciatic Nerve (the longest and largest nerve in our bodies) that runs from the heel of your foot to the base of your spine where our Root Chakra is located.  Individuals suffering from sciatica experience disconnect with the Earth and the onset of dis-eases occurs that are associated with being out of balance with the Earth’s Frequency.  Hematite offers us a reconnection through our sciatic nerve and a rebalance with the Earth Energies.

Hematite is often referred to as a bloodstream purifier. When you polish or drill into this stone, it appears to bleed due to the high concentration of Iron Ore.  This stone energizes the entire body by improving circulation and the flow of oxygen to all cells.  Hematite is also a protective stone and enhances optimism, courage and willpower.
