Hematite is thought by many to be the most magical and healing of gemstones. It is thought to help with stress and concentration. Hematite was used in jewelry and art created by the ancient Egyptians. A gemstone is prized especially for great beauty or perfection so appearance is almost always the most important attribute of gemstones.

Please note that natural gemstones do vary in colour so may not be identical with their illustrations. Comes in a smart velvet pouch. Handmade.
