Healing Energies: Hematite is a grounding stone. This is an awesome mineral for manifestation for those of us who have trouble manifesting in the physical world. Used by many to amplify the energies around themselves or to amplify the energy of other stones, Quartz is also a stone of programmability. You can place this stone near another stone to bring that energy even more fully into the surrounding area or to make your mediation with another stone more powerful. Combining the two restores faith and optimism in your life.
Facts and Lore: The formula for hematite is Fe2O3. It was named in about 300 BC in Greek for blood stone. Quartz has been known and used since time before written record. It was first named in written record around 300 BC. The name "quartz" is a recent variation from German. Reading the histories, it seems that "quartz" was officially adopted as the name of this mineral in the mid 1600's. In the metaphysical world, we apply the name quartz to the clear macrocrystalline variety of this mineral. The chemical makeup of all quartz starts with the basic SiO2 that gives you clear quartz. If there is another chemical in the mix, it then normally becomes a colored quartz. When it forms as a single point, it is normally 6 sided.
