When iron is exposed to oxygen, either through the atmosphere or contact with water, it will oxidize, giving birth to Hematite. Transforming the nature of one of the hardest metals on the earth, Hematite is endowed through the very process of its creation with the powers of metamorphosis. It carries the strength of iron and the ethereal essence of oxygen. Hematite’s red essence is revealed by streak test and through the bright red powder that is left behind when it is cut or polished. Since the essence of the stone is red, instead of silver-black, Hematite stimulates the power of unseen creative energy (red), while extending its influence into revealed manifestation (black).
