Commonly found in sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic rocks located around the world, the name Hematite is derived from the Greek word "haimatites" which translates to "blood." The name is in reference to the blood-red shade Hematite can be found when cut. Known as the most important ore of iron due to its high iron content, Hematite is considered to be a very common and abundant mineral that is composed of iron oxide.

Hematite has been around for thousands and thousands of years. In fact, it was discovered that Hematite was utilized as a pigment in cave paintings from forty thousand years ago. Roman, Greek, and Egyptian civilizations were also known to employ Hematite in the making of both jewelry and artwork. Romans would use Hematite in weapon making and decorating their armor. Ancient Egyptian civilizations were known to use Hematite in decorating the tombs of pharaohs. Hematite is said to be a stone associated with Mars, the god of war, because of this Hematite was grounded up into a powder pigment and was utilized by Native Americans, Greek, and Roman warriors for war paint due to the belief it would keep them safe in battle.

In metaphysical belief, Hematite is a stone of grounding and balance. Hematite is associated with the root chakra meaning this stone possesses the ability to anchor the holder to the earth and in doing so provides a feeling of stability. If you see yourself experiencing a major life change, Hematite is the perfect stone in giving a much needed feeling of grounding.
