WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT HEMATITE?
Hematite clearly has a very strong grounding energy; you can feel that just by holding the stone in your hand. It also has a cooling and calming effect, as well as helps develop concentration and focus. Overall, hematite brings a quality of energy that is powerful, strong and grounding.
It works with one's mind by calming it and clearing the unnecessary clutter.
WHERE DOES HEMATITE COME FROM?
Most of the hematite sold on the market comes from Brazil, Venezuela, USA, and Canada.
WHAT ARE THE SPECIFIC FENG SHUI PROPERTIES OF HEMATITE?
In feng shui, hematite is used for its grounding, calming, as well as protective properties.
Hematite can also be energizing (in a balanced kind of way), so you can often find it in feng shui jewelry.
WHAT FORM OF HEMATITE SHOULD I CHOOSE?
Your chosen form will depend on the intended use of hematite. As with all crystals and stones that are quite affordable, it is good to have at least several tumbled rock hematites because this way you can take them with you anywhere! From your car to your purse or office computer, you can place the hematite where it can help you with a burst of strong and cool, calming energy.
HOW ABOUT HEMATITE JEWELRY?
When it comes to jewelry, be sure to distinguish between hematite and magnetic hematite. Even though magnetic (man-made) hematite has its own interesting properties, I say best to choose the nature-made one! Most popular hematite jewelry options are bracelets and rings because they help ground your energy.
WHERE DO I PLACE THE HEMATITE FOR GOOD FENG SHUI?
The area of your home bagua that can benefit the most from the energy of hematite is the Career & Path in Life (North bagua area). You can also place the stone in the Creativity & Children bagua area (West).
Hematite is also an excellent stone for one's study or home office, as well as by the front door of your house.
If you want to bring a hematite carving into your home (or office) for good feng shui, you can find many small animal carvings in typical gift shops. Choose an animal whose spirit you admire, combine it with the energy of hematite, and voila! - you've just got yourself a good feng shui cure!
