Hematite works with the circulatory system, healing and promoting blood health and oxygen flow.  It also works to calm the nervous system, with its soothing and grounding properties.  Hematite can also be used for pain relief, especially within the spine as it connects to the root chakra at the very base of the spine, the starting point for all the other energy centres.
