Hematite Rose on Quartz
It's a chameleon of the crystal world, forming in a wide variety of shapes, from clumpy masses through to the fairy dust of Specularite. Here it is in tiny roses, made of little blade crystals, trailing over a bed of Cornish Quartz.
It was found in one of the clay pits in St Austell.
It is the high iron content of Hematite that is worked to make magnetic items in this stone, and this is felt in its weight and reflected in its quality of grounding oneself to feel secure in oneself and in one's thoughts.
A stone of protection, Hematite's magnetic qualities help by creating a buffer around you, similar to when you hold magnets in opposition.
It is used for circulation disorders, thought to support the blood cleansing function of the kidneys. It is also associated with improved absorption of iron and production of red blood cells, and flowing from that, relief from cramp, anxiety and insomnia.
