Where and how to use:
Hematite was used in its powdered form as a chalk for writing and drawing on cave walls. Traces of hematite have also been found in graveyards from 80,000 years ago. Continuing hematite’s rich history, hematite chalk mines have been found that are dated from 5,000 BC.
It’s said the ancient Egyptians used hematite to stop bleeding, and included amulets of the mineral in their tombs. Hematite was referred to as a “blood stone” in the Middle Ages for the red tinge left in water when it was washed during polishing, as if the stone itself bled. The red powdered form of hematite was used by Native Americans, and folklore indicated that it would make the warriors invincible in battle. Also used by ancient Greeks as 'armour' when battling in war, used as protection. Later, during the 18th and 19th centuries, hematite was used in jewellery, to be worn during mourning.
