Reviews of Spiritual Products >> Hematite Gemstones

By sunnyray

It has been long since we have explored the online markets in search of semiprecious and precious stones. Crystals and stones are our passion and that's why every now and then we purchase a couple crystals and minerals online. Usually we buy them in form of loose stones, but we wouldn't mind having them embedded in all forms of jewelry as well. Recently were especially interested in checking the world of hematite gemstones.

What are Hematite Stones good for?

There is a lot of literature on that subject, for example you can check our article on the metaphysical properties of hematite stones. Hematite is often used in crystal healing and crystal therapy for a range of issues.

In particular, they are renowned as healing tools for various blood related problems, such as, circulatory problems, anemia, healing wounds and cuts, etc. Still, it is only fair to say that the influence of the magnetic field (hematite exhibits a weak magnetism, see below) on living organisms is still not quite understood.

Unisex Gemstones

We like to think that hematite is one of the several stones that equally well suit men and women. While wearing an amethyst ring would not be quite appropriate for men, a nice men's gold hematite ring is certainly acceptable for everyone.

The Price Range

When we speak about gemstones, this usually means that we are referring to specimens of exceptional purity, color, cut, shape and other attributes. They are expensive! However, all hematite stones look pretty much the same and they are neither transparent nor have they great purity. They possess a sort of black, grayish or silvery metallic shine. If purchased as loose stones, they are definitely not expensive.

However, the price of your hematite jewelry will depend on factors other than the stone. In cases of gold or white gold settings, or even more so if there is a multistone combination (hematite plus diamond, for example, - looks really astonishing) be prepared to pay much more.

The Weight

Hematite is an iron mineral. Iron makes this stone much heavier than all the other silicon based gemstones. Therefore, when compared to other minerals, hematite is quite heavy. One should keep this in mind when purchasing larger necklaces and massive bracelets. In most cases the earrings will be slightly heavier than what you might have been used to, but still without weighting down too much.

Words of caution

Hematite, as most of the iron compounds, is a weakly magnetic material. Magnetic jewelry can be very beneficial (see above) but should only be worn by people without pacemakers, or pumps. Also pregnant women should consult their physician prior to using this type of jewelry.
