Hematite 8mm Round Str16"/50Bds


The name hematite comes from the Greek for "blood" because when it is cut, the water used to cool the blade runs red from the iron oxide. Extracted from mines in the United States, Canada, Brazil, and Australia, hematite is popular for both menís and womenís jewelry. Recently, a process for reconstituting and magnetizing hematite led to an influx of magnetic hematite beads in the marketplace. Some legends say that hematiteís protective properties can preserve the blood and life essence of warriors fallen in battle. The shiny face of a large hematite crystal was often used as a mirror in ancient times. This stone is believed to be useful in overcoming addictions including smoking or overeating. Strands are 16 inches long with approximately 50 beads.
