Hematite, known for its metallic sheen, has played a significant role in jewelry history since ancient times. Its name comes from the Greek word ‘haima’, meaning blood, due to its iron content and the red streak it forms when cut. Ancient Egyptians wore hematite jewelry for protection and healing, believing it could stop bleeding and ease pain. In Ancient Rome, people made hematite into seals and amulets, valuing it for protection and strength.
Hematite’s strong connection to the earth also makes it a grounding force in spiritual practices, blending physical and spiritual qualities. This mix of earthy and spiritual meanings makes hematite a powerful symbol across various cultures and spiritual beliefs.
