Hematite is called ‘blood stone’ because, when it is found naturally, the iron content is covered in rust which makes it look red. Hematite is the most powerful gemstone to use for grounding. It can help you clear away confusion and orient you toward practical action in the real world. It brings the energy of higher consciousness down through the chakras to your root, and helps you transform that energy into physical reality. Hematite is the mineral form of iron oxide. Hematite beads are striking, being shiny and black when polished. They are heavy for their size. Hematite is a zodiac stone for Aries and Aquarius.
Spinel comes in many shades from transparent (colourless) to shades of pink, red, blue, yellow, green, brown and black. It brings the mind stability and happiness and reduces the symptoms of depression and harmonises the structure of chakras by healing them along the spine thus named as spinel. Black spinel is highly reflective and does not feature the same metallic overtone that many other black stones do. It’s a gorgeous deep black in appearance. They are widely found in the areas of Vietnam, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Tanzania and Tajikistan.
