This is a piece of the mineral hematite which has been shaped into a figure eight twist to be worn as a pendant or Necklace.
Hematite also spelled Haematite is a mineral, colored black to steel or silver-gray, brown to reddish brown, or red. It is mined as the main ore of iron.
Huge deposits of hematite are found in banded iron formations. Gray hematite is typically found in places that can have still standing water or mineral hot springs, such as those in Yellowstone National Park in North America. Hematite can also occur without water, however, usually as the result of volcanic activity.

Hematite is among the most effective stones for grounding oneself in the body and the physical world. It can counteract spaciness and confusion, helping one to see practical concerns and move forward with useful action.
Hematite can be used to balance the auric field and align the chakras. It pulls stray energies down through the meridian system to the root chakra.
Manifestation is one of the most common problems for spiritually oriented people. Many do not realize that it is not enough to travel to the higher realms and experience expanded awareness.
One goal, perhaps the primary one, of human evolution, is to bring the energies of the etheric realms into manifestation here in the physical plane.
Hematite is an ideal tool in this work. Carrying or wearing Hematite can assist one in bringing one’s dreams and aspirations into reality and in learning the difference between a true vision and a fantasy.
