Hematite can be called a stone for the mind.  It helps one to sort out things in ones mind, and can be used for mental attunement, memory enhancement, original thinking, and technical knowledge.  It assists on in mathematical pursuits and in the development of both mental and manual dexterity.

It is also capable of helping the body to remain cool, or of dispelling heat at the physical level; one could use it on the forehead to draw out the heat from a fever, or one could take it as an elixir internally.

It assists in the focusing of energy and emotions for balance between the body, mind, and spirit.  It also assists in the dissolution of negativity, transforming the negativity, in the dissolved state, to the purity of the universal light of love.  It helps one to attain a soft meditative state, providing for smooth grounding and bringing tranquility and emotional clarity.

It can be used in the treatment of leg cramps, blood disorders (such as anemia), nervous disorders, and insomnia.  It can also be used to assist in spinal alignment and in the proper healing of breaks and fractures; placing a piece of hematite on the base of the spine, on the are of mis-alignment, and on the top of the spine has provided adjustment to the vertebrae.
