Metaphysical Properties of This Product
Hematite: Hematite is well known for two characteristics: its ability to ground and its ability to protect.
The grounding energies of this stone make it an excellent choice for the perpetually un-grounded or scattered person, for anyone who is moving or traveling, and during meditation. These energies can also help to calm agitation and anxiety.
Coupled with this, Hematite offers protection from negative energies, including electromagnetic frequencies. It is therefore useful to have throughout the home, office, or car.
Metaphysically, Hematite helps you to stop repeating mistakes, learn from them, and be stronger for it. Indeed, strength—particularly the masculine form of that energy—is one energy that it offers. According to Judy Hall, Hematite also “brings the mind’s attention to basic survival needs.” Hall explains that it also facilitates better concentration, focus, original thinking, and the ability to solve problems.
Mohs hardness: 5.5-6.5.
Group: Iron oxide.
“Hematite,” Magnetized (manmade): Natural Hematite is not magnetic. These beads are therefore a mixture of Hematite and small amounts of other minerals that enable the Hematite to hold a strong and permanent magnetic charge. The reason for doing this is because magnets can be powerful healing tools: They have been used in various cultures for millennia as ways to manipulate and re-balance the energies in the body. Magnetized “Hematite” therefore combines Hematite’s properties with the energy-manipulating abilities of magnets. More information about using magnets for health is here.
These beads contain magnets. They should not come into contact with a pacemaker.
Quartz, Smoky: Smoky Quartz is beloved for its ability to both ground a person’s energy as well as to protect their energy against negative influences or negative emotions. Anyone seeking to anchor into their physical body more of the higher frequencies would do well with this stone. Notably, Smoky Quartz is associated with the base of the body: hips; legs; and feet.
It also helps with fear, depression, and letting go of what no longer serves. It may clear the mind and alleviate stress.

Our Signature Moldavite Charm is attached to this product, and contains Moldavite and Clear Quartz
Moldavite: Moldavite has extraterrestrial origins: It was formed by a meteorite that crashed into Earth almost 15 million years ago. This particular crash is noteworthy because of its “tremendous power. The force of the impact explosion has been estimated at six trillion megatons…. The [temperature]…was high enough to vaporize rock, and the main body of the meteorite is believed to have passed completely through the Earth’s crust.”* Back on the surface, a green, glass-like stone was formed, and we call this Moldavite.
Moldavite is revered partly because of its extraterrestrial origin; ancient cultures described it as having fallen from the sky, and the stone features in legends related to the Holy Grail.*
As well, Moldavite is revered for its powerfully high vibration and for the unique, off-planet energies that it carries. Many people believe that Moldavite is here on Earth to help our planet ascend to a higher level of existence. It is therefore considered to be a stone for the New Age.
Energetically, Moldavite is an activator: It activates one’s latent spiritual energies and one’s higher path. As explained by Naisha Ahsian: “Moldavite is a cardinal Storm element stone. Storm represents massive transformation, cleansing and change on all levels…. [Moldavite] carries an intense frequency that deeply activates the entire chakra system, stimulates the kundalini, cracks open one’s psychic channels and propels one into one’s future with the force of a hurricane…. Once you have invoked this ally’s power, it is best to be truly willing to face and release whatever has held you back so far.”
When used in meditation, Moldavite offers energetic activations, including by “energizing the interconnections between all aspects of one’s etheric, astral, causal and physical bodies”;* expanded awareness “that would put any hallucinogen to shame”;* “amazing cosmic journeys”;* communication with beings in other dimensions, on other planets, and across the cosmos; interdimensional travel; and a feeling of connection to, and oneness with, all of Creation.
The very high vibration of Moldavite also offers energetic and psychic protection for its users; it helps one to vibrate so high that lower energies, entities, and attachments are released and then repelled. Moldavite is one of the most important stones for protection, and indeed this is one key reason why many energy workers use it.
Moldavite’s ability to activate and enhance energies also applies to other stones: It can amplify the properties of stones with which it is paired.
Anyone who is new to Moldavite is encouraged to work with this stone gradually. Several days or even weeks may be needed to acclimate to Moldavite’s energy. Indeed, people “who hold Moldavite for the first time most often experience its energy as warmth or heat, [and this] has happened often enough to have been given a name—the ‘Moldavite flush.’”*
Please note: Moldavite may chip easily.

Quartz (Clear): Clear Quartz is best known for two characteristics: it is an amplifier; and it can be programmed. The former means that this stone will amplify the energies and characteristics of whatever is near it–be it another stone or a feeling. This characteristic is often used by healers to magnify the energies that they channel into a patient.
The latter means that intentions and energies can be set into the stone, and it will hold these programs very well. (Because Clear Quartz is programmed so easily, when you obtain one of these stones, it is important to clear all prior programming that may be in it–either accidentally or deliberately–unless you are aware of the programming and give permission for it. Put The Light Here clears all of our stones prior to using them in our products.) Of all stones, Clear Quartz is essentially the pure and empty vessel, the blank slate, awaiting instructions.
Additionally, this stone can clear blocks in the body, intensify psychic and spiritual experiences, and unlock memories.
