Physical Characteristics: Perfect for wrangling your small to medium sized eggs and spheres! Small and unobtrusive sitting underneath your stone, they are barely noticeable but will keep your sphere from rolling around, or will hold an egg upright. Sometimes the Hematite Rings chip or crack. But they still make excellent sphere and egg holders for displaying your treasures! Hematite leaves a blood-red streak when performing the streak test (hema = blood). This mineral is an iron oxide with a hardness of 5 to 6. Color is a dull to metallic shiny grey. Hematite is wide-spread, usually found in banded iron formations.
Metaphysical Properties: Do you have negativity in your life? Do you want to make sure your eggs and/or spheres aren't being affected by this negativity? These Hematite rings may help! They are meant to absorb negativity, thus protecting your treasure and removing negative energy from your surroundings. However, they have a limited capacity and WILL BREAK when they have absorbed all that they can. They will also break if you hit them on a hard surface or if you drop your egg or sphere onto the ring rather than gently placing it. They also have a grounding affect, so will help if your egg or sphere needs to have an energetic connection to ground. Hematite helps to balance all energies, and will also help to connect the root chakra to the physical plane.
Please note that these rings are not recommended for wearing due to possible injury from the imperfections. They also won't work well for holding very large, very heavy, or very small eggs or spheres.
