Hematite PDF Print E-mail

Hematite, also spelled as hæmatite, is the mineral form of iron oxide (Fe2O3), one of several iron oxides. Hematite crystallizes in the rhombohedral system.

Hematite is a mineral, colored black to steel or silver-gray, brown to reddish brown, or red. It is mined as the main ore of iron. Varieties include kidney ore, martite (pseudomorphs after magnetite), iron rose and specularite (specular hematite). While the forms of hematite vary, they all have a rust-red streak. Hematite is harder than pure iron, but much more brittle. Maghemite is a hematite- and magnetite-related oxide mineral.

 

Huge deposits of hematite are found in banded iron formations. Grey hematite is typically found in places where there has been standing water or mineral hot springs, such as those in Yellowstone National Park in the United States. The mineral can precipitate out of water and collect in layers at the bottom of a lake, spring, or other standing water. Hematite can also occur without water, however, usually as the result of volcanic activity.

Clay-sized hematite crystals can also occur as a secondary mineral formed by weathering processes in soil, and along with other iron oxides or oxyhydroxides such as goethite, is responsible for the red color of many tropical, ancient, or otherwise highly weathered soils.

Good specimens of hematite come from England, Mexico, Brazil, Australia, United States and Canada.

The Earth possesses a natural magnetic energy field, which we absorb, however many people now feel that we are limiting the amount of natural magnetic energy that the body absorbs and polluting our bodies magnetic fields with modern devices including mobile phones, microwaves etc.

Magnetic Therapy has been used for centuries to relieve pain, reduce inflamation and enhance healing. This works because there is iron in the blood, so the magnetism aids blood flow. Magnetism is thought to benefit sufferers of lumbago, rhumatism and stiff joints.

The natural energy in our body helps to release endorphins into the blood stream which is our natural pain killer. Wearing magnetic products and jewellery, replaces the energy in our system and could decrease pain up to 70%.

Wearers of magnetic jewellery claim that it has helped them with:

Muscular pain, Joint pain, respiration problems, back pain, poor circulation, varicose Veins, Migraine and Headaches, stress and anxiety, Arthritis, period pain Rheumatism etc. Hematite is also said to be good for Anti-Depression, Grounding, Oxygenation of the bloodstream, Iron.
