Hematite is one of the best know protective stones that has been used through time. Hematite can either come in magnetic or non-magnetic form, and it is heavy for its tumbled size.
Hematite is known to deflect negative energy heading your way, breaking up the energy before it has any damaging affect. There are many stories related to Hematite's protective qualities and it has been reported to even have saved lives, sometimes breaking into many pieces in the process. It can also break apart when it is placed in environments that are heavily laden with negative energy. It is said that in breaking apart, it is absorbing all the negative energy, protecting everything within the space where it is used.
Crystals can differ in size, shape, and color.
