The evil eye has been used throughout the centuries to ward off curses or malicious intent. Many believed the evil eye could protect against three different kinds unintentional, intentional, and unseen. These curses manifest in things such as jealousy, someone wishing you bad luck, or negative energy surrounding you.
The name Hematite derives its meaning from the Greek word for blood. The reason for the origin of Hematite's name can be twofold. The Hematite looks shiny black on the outside, but if you break the stone (not an easy thing to do!), you will see that on the inside Hematite has a deep blood red color.
Hematite focuses energy and emotions for balance between the body, mind and spirit. Dissolves negativity and prevents you from absorbing the negativity of others. Hematite is strong, supporting timidity, boosting self-esteem and survivability, enhancing willpower and reliability, and imparting confidence.
