Hematite is known as a "stone for the mind". It brings mental organization and is very grounding and calming. It helps with original thinking, logical thinking, and mathematics. It decreases negativity and can help balance the body/mind/spirit. Physically it has been used to keep the body cool, to decrease blood disorders, nervous problems and insomnia, as well as align the spine and mend broken bones. Hematite is associated with the root (base) chakra. Hematite is good at grounding out excess energy and acting as a stabilizing force.

For the LONGEST time I couldn't wear hematite jewelry because it would snap and break within a week of me wearing it (lots of stress, I guess).
LAst year during my stressful teaching/cheer sponsor run, a friend gave me a hematite bracelet that never broke. I found I always slept better if I wore it during the day (before wearing it I was having terrible insomnia due to stressing out over the upcoming day) and when I did wear it, I didn't get easily rattled or exhausted, despite how hectic everything was.
