Here's to Hematite Bracelets

Hematite derives its name from the Greek word meaning "Blood-like" because of the red color of its powder. American Indians used this red hematite powder as paint in artwork and on bodies. When the stone is smooth and polished – just the way you like it – it showcases a beautiful steel grey color with a metallic luster. This is what you'll find in our assortment of hematite bracelets.

Although both red and grey hematite are common here on Earth, they are also responsible for Mars' distinct red color, since oxidized iron covers its surface. Think of it this way: our hematite bracelets are basically made from the same thing as Mars dust. Right? Well, it sounds cool at least. Grey hematite usually forms from the presence of water over long periods of time. It is typically found in layers in places like lakes or mineral hot springs - or as a result of volcanic activity. It has the same crystal structure as sapphire and ruby.

It was once believed that big deposits of hematite were formed where battles occurred because all of the blood would flow into the ground and become the stone. Yikes. That's pretty rough. Since the stone can be polished to such a high sheen, hematite was long ago used to make mirrors. Imagine being draped in hematite jewelry admiring it in a mirror that is also made of hematite. That's kind of meta actually… Anyway, stack up our hematite bracelets next to a stylish watch and show off that lovely silver-grey vibe you're all about.
