Metaphysical Properties: Do you have negativity in your life? These Hematite rings may help! They are meant to absorb negativity, thus protecting you and removing negative energy from you and 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 possibly an adjacent ring on your hand. They also have a grounding affect, and will balance all energies. Hematite helps to connect the root chakra to the physical plane. Such a helpful little ring to wear!
