Hematoid Quartz is Clear Quartz with Hematite inclusions that give it a red or orange appearance. Quartz amplifies the properties of Hematite, making Hematoid Quartz a powerful healing crystal with the properties of both stone types.
Hematite: A stone of artistic inspiration, imagination, creativity and wealth. This silvery black stone has had metaphysical and practical uses throughout history. Cave paintings, known as "pictographs," dating back to 40,000 years ago were created with hematite pigments. During the Renaissance when many painters began using oils and canvas, hematite was one of the most important pigments. Hematite color was opaque and permanent. In the metaphysical world, Hematite was long associated with the planet Mars, and recently, it was discovered the surface of Mars actually does contain such an abundance of hematite, that is what gives the surface its red appearance.
Clear Quartz: Clear Quartz is considered a supreme healing crystal, beloved for thousands of years by many cultures. It is an essential part of any crystal collection and a staple for crystal healing, energy work, Reiki and meditation. Clear Quartz is best known for its powerful cleansing properties and ability to 'charge' or amplify the effect of other crystals.
