Hematite is a very high-energy stone.
If you have high energy this is not the stone for you cause you would be bouncing off the walls.
BUT if your energy is low this is a great grounding stone for you.
Back in the day, it was called the bloodstone cause when cut the water would cause the iron in it to turn red .. making it look like it was bleeding.
Holding this stone will first feel cold, but it will begin to warm from your body and energy.
I personally like to use it on places like my arms, hand, and back.

I like to use cabochons of hematite on my body or to hold.
Uses for hematite:
Absorbs negative energy from your body and your environment.
