Hematite means ‘blood stone’ and it is an element of iron/metal, which is why Hematite is an essential stone to work with during your spiritual journey.

Why was Hematite called ‘blood stone’? Because, when it is found naturally, the iron content is covered in rust which makes it look red.

In Ancient Rome, Hematite was a popular stone for decorative purposes. Jewelry, weapons, and even armor decorated with Hematite were traded widely.

The dark color was thought to be especially intimidating or protective.

But aside from the literal meaning or translation, there also are spiritual meanings and wisdom to tap into.

Hematite’s spiritual meaning is to bring balance to both the etheric body and the physical body. And due to its magnetic nature and our ying-yang energies, it’s nature is to bring us back to equilibrium.

Hematite belongs to the planet of Mars, the god of war, the god of the battlefield. Therefore it is a stone of invincibility on all levels – physical, astral, and mental.

Although a warrior stone, it is also very fragile in nature. And thus paradoxically, it looks to be nurtured and cared for by its owner.

This beautiful metaphor of appearing strong on the outside but delicate on the inside represents how as humans we give so much more importance to our Ego and the external world than we do to our Soul.

The ego hinders our evolution of more profound self-discovery and creates an illusion that we each have an identity or are separate from each other.

Upon detaching from the illusion that we are just a physical body, magic starts to manifest in our lives.

Through awareness as observers of our thoughts, and as observers of the outer world, we can ascend much faster on our souls’ journey into higher levels of awareness.

As you see, just the observation of crystals alone can be enough to shed light and wisdom about the world we live in.

Looking for the Hard Truth? Then Hematite is your crystal. Hematite has the ability to draw out deep-rooted traumas. Like pulling out weeds that were a part of your current belief system that the conscious mind is not aware of.

This type of shadow work may be intense and overwhelming but will bring you closer to new truths. It will help you recognize your current mental state. This level of awareness on a conscious level is actually your hidden power.

And through becoming more conscious of your behaviors, you will be able to reprogram your subconscious into a new way of thinking.  

Unlike other dark and earth stones, say, for example, Obsidian, Hematite is a nurturing stone. It is taking you on a gradual path during your Spiritual evolution, without causing too much shock or stress. That is why it’s ideal for those who wish to heal through confronting their past, slowly and gently.

Healing these traumas and rewriting old thought patterns will initiate your connection back to Mother Earth, helping you reconnect with your body, bring your clarity, and focus on the positive parts of life.

My preferred way to understand the spiritual meaning of Hematite is through connecting with a Hematite Palmstone.

Palmstones being polished, carry an even energy across their surface area and therefore will bring you a much more stable experience than raw stones, which are a bit more volatile.

Properties Of Hematite

Physical Properties

Hematite is a shiny, dark-colored reddish-brown stone found in South Africa and all over the world. It consists mainly of iron, which gives it its metallic sheen.

Hematite stones are opaque, not the strongest of stones (it has a 5-6 on the Mohs hardness scale). And they have a strong metallic luster.

When found in nature, Hematite will be rough and blood red – because of its iron content. But once polished, it takes on a beautiful, mirror-like sheen, which makes it extremely popular in semi-precious jewelry.

Metaphysical Properties

Hematite’s main metaphysical property could be described as “grounding.”

If you tend to have a ‘flighty’ mind, prone to distraction, lack of focus, or anxiety, or even if you feel that you have a strong imagination, but that it’s impacting you negatively, this could be the perfect stone for you.

It won’t “kill” your imagination – quite the opposite, as described above! But it will give you an increased ability to focus your mind in a productive way. Rather than becoming psychically distracted.

Hematite’s energy is earthy. It is one of the best stones that you can use to harness the power of the element of earth to lend you strength and dispel negativity.

Benefits Of Using Hematite

Hematite’s powerfully earthy energy means that you can use it for almost any project that involves the power of the element of earth.

Earth is the element that rules the physical world, money, practical thinking, and decision making. This makes the powers of earth extremely popular and beneficial!

Thinking in a solid, logical way that will also improve your material and financial life is a pretty positive way to go through life.

Specifically, Hematite is a good stone for organizing one’s thoughts and developing logical thinking skills.

Hematite has an almost steely quality and feel to it which means that intellectually speaking, you always feel as though you have a solid footing.

In debates, you might not always win the day. But with Hematite, you will certainly find yourself more capable of articulating your points than you might usually be.

It’s welcome energy indeed, but luckily it doesn’t make you wilfully confrontational. Instead, you’re more likely to calmly and confidently defend your position on something assertively. Rather than going out looking for wrongs to right or sticking your nose into other peoples’ affairs.

Indeed, if you find it hard not to try and rush in and save others, Hematite can prove a wonderfully grounding stone.
