Small Natural Hematite Stone Simple Wire-Wrapped Pendant Necklace

Simply wrapped with 99.9% pure copper wire, this natural, unpolished piece of Hematite makes a great pendant to wear anywhere by anyone.


**Because the wire is natural copper, you should definitely expect it to naturally oxidize and darken over time. Depending on when the pendant was made, the wire may be darker when you receive the pendant, compared to the photographs in this listing.  


This stone measures approximately 3/4 inch tall. The pendant's total height is just over 1 3/4 inches.


Includes a silky-satin black cord in your choice of two lengths: 18 or 24 inches, each with a 2-inch extension chain. The metal clasp and chain portions of the cord are lead- and nickel-free.


Hematite is an interesting substance. It got its name from the Greek word ‘hamatitis’, which means blood-red, after the color of the mineral in its powdered form. Hematite is opaque crimson or gray when natural and gray with a mirror-like brilliance when tumbled.


Hematite is a type of iron ore composed of iron oxide crystals. Hematite has a metallic shine and is available in various hues, including black, grey, silver, and reddish-brown varieties.


Nearly every human society has used the earthy red variety of hematite as a pigment for paints, glazes, facial and body decorations. Because of hematite’s abundance, red has always been one of the cheapest paint hues to produce, making it a logical choice for painting large structures. The low cost of hematite-stained red paint led to an American icon — the red barn.


From lipstick to fire trucks and rusted scrap iron, most red pigments in our world and society are composed of hematite. Its importance isn't limited to color, however. Hematite is also the most abundant and economically important source of iron.


Historically, hematite has been known by several names. The ancient Greeks called it haima, which means “blood.” Because of its link to the soil, it’s also known as the Iron Rose. Prehistoric man used hematite to make designs on cave walls, the Egyptians to decorate pharaohs’ tombs, and Native Americans as battle paint.


Because of its long association with magic and blood, hematite has been used historically in post-partum care and on the battlefield to stop excessive bleeding. It was also worn by peasants and magicians for protection from curses and spells.


Today, it's used by many to help stay grounded by connecting the body and spirit to the Earth.
