Hematite Egg Stone Carving
These Hematite egg carvings are 2 inch or 50 mm tall.
Hematite is a silvery, shiny opaque black gemstone that almost looks like metal. It was used in seals as early as 2500 B.C. Roman warriors used it as protection during battles, and Native Americans used it to make red face paint. Until recently cosmetic blush contained ground hematite.
Hematite gets its name from the Greek Haimo for "blood", because of the color of its powder (hence the red streak it leaves).
Metaphysical Properties of Hematite: Hematite is said to give one strength, courage and fortitude for moving through adversity.
