"Cobra" Necklace made with Hematite
Hematite is used to improve relationships. If you need your personal relationship to be better, carry a hematite with you always. The name comes from the Greek word for blood. It has been used as an amulet against bleeding, and so is known as the "blood stone". When arranged like the petals of a flower, it is referred to as the "iron rose". Native American folklore states that war paint made from hematite will make one invincible in battle. People in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries wore hematite jewelry during mourning. Scientists of the Mars Exploration Rover Project believe that deposits of hematite on Mars may help prove whether large amounts of liquid water ever flowed on Mars' surface. Hematite is good for increasing intuition. In jewelry it is best in a bracelet worn on the left hand.
