Mineral and crystal healers associate Hematite with blood and use it in
their rituals for treating blood-related illnesses such as hemophilia, anemia,
heart, kidney and liver diseases, cardio-vascular weakness, menstrual cramps,
and nose bleeds. They also recommend it for use in treating the stress of jet
lag, birth and surgery, tumors, insomnia, leg cramps, nervous disorders and
fevers. Hematite was also a Native American remedy for dental problems, pimples,
canker sores and alcohol abuse.
