Hematite Tumble

Hematite is a common iron oxide mineral with a metallic luster and a deep black to steel-gray coloration. 

Hematite is found in various locations worldwide, including Brazil, Australia, China, India, South Africa, and the United States. It forms in sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous rocks, often occurring in association with other iron-bearing minerals such as magnetite and goethite. Hematite typically forms through the alteration of precursor minerals under conditions of low oxygen and high iron concentrations.

Hematite typically appears as dense, compact masses or as tabular, botryoidal, or reniform (kidney-shaped) crystals. It has a distinctive metallic luster that ranges from shiny to dull, depending on the crystal structure and surface conditions. The mineral's color can vary from black to steel-gray, with occasional reddish-brown or silver-gray hues.

When polished or cut into cabochons, hematite exhibits a striking metallic sheen that can be highly reflective. Its streak, the color of its powdered form, is typically reddish-brown, distinguishing it from other similar minerals. Hematite is relatively hard and has a metallic to submetallic luster, making it a popular material for jewelry, carvings, and ornamental objects.

Due to its association with iron, hematite has been used for thousands of years for various purposes, including as a pigment, a source of iron ore for smelting, and in metaphysical practices for grounding and protection.

To prevent pressure built up in the ears during air travel, keep a piece in each pocket.  In Feng Shui, Hematite is used for its grounding, calming, as well as protective properties. Place in your car, at your office computer, or in your purse to help with a burst of strong and cool, calming energy. Place by the front door of your home for good Feng Shui, on the North side of your home for the career and life path energy, or in the West of your home for creativity energy.
