The following is an excerpt from Cunningham’s Encyclopedia of Crystal, Gem and Metal Magic by Scott Cunningham INSERT URL TO BARNES AND NOBEL REVIEW ON BOOK

FOLK NAME: Volcano Spit

ENERGY: Projective

PLANET: Saturn


POWERS: Healing, Grounding, Divination

MAGICAL/RITUAL LORE: Hematite is a strange stone. It is heavy, solid, and silvery black. Its name alone is something of a mystery. To ancients, Hematite was what we now know as bloodstone, so virtually all magical information relating to "Hematite" in old books refers to bloodstone. This Hematite, though, when worked on a lapidary wheel, "bleeds" and produces stains that look much like blood.

Hematite is a fine, showy stone. In Italy and elsewhere, it is fashioned into necklaces which

are sold as "volcano spit." Magical information relating to this stone is scarce.

Hematite possesses the curious property of "healing" itself. Make a small scratch on the

surface of the stone, then rub your finger over it. The scratch may disappear.

MAGICAL USES: Hematite is said to be powerful in drawing illness from the body. As with all stones, it is held in the hands while visualizing, then placed on the skin directly over the afflicted area. A necklace of small stones can also be worn for healing.

Hematite is worn for grounding and stabilizing purposes, and to focus the attention on the

physical plane.

A scrying: In a darkened room, light a red candle. Settle before it and hold a large piece

of Hematite so that the candle's flame is reflected on it. Gaze at the reflection and

visualize a question. The answer will come to you.
