Here is a Question from One of Our Customers:
Q: A friend of mine has strung together small hematite beads into an anklet and wears it on her right ankle. She is doing so to help with pain from a damaged Achilles tendon. It seems to help. I am, however, concerned that the stones might in some way be pulling energy from her, rather than energizing her. If this is true, would placement elsewhere on her body be best? Or am I unnecessarily concerned?
I must share the standard disclaimer that I am not a doctor and cannot give out medical advice. Crystals for healing should be used as a compliment to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care.
You must be a dear friend to be so concerned. Your friend is correct in her placement of the beads. Hematite regenerates tissue, so if she has problems with her Achilles tendon then Hematite is the correct stone and it should be placed over the effected area to better facilitate healing.
Many people know of Hematite as a grounding stone, but few know that it is also considered a womens stone. It assist in blood flow and organ regulation and gives strength, courage and confidence to those who need it. In a way you could say Hematite is the one stone you turn to when you are in survival mode. It can get you through the ups and downs of just trying to live. It will support you until you are ready to release it. It comes to mind that your friend may have chosen the Hematite just as much for its support as for its healing properties. I would not worry. Im sure when she no longer needs it she will release the beads to be passed on to another in need of its healing and support.
