Specular Hematite, also known as Specularite, is a variety of Hematite with a shiny exterior surface with black undertones. The shimmering effect is caused by aggregate pockets of incredibly shiny flakes of Hematite as well as minor traces of Mica. Specular Hematite can be found worldwide from the United States to Canada, Italy, Brazil, Switzerland, Sweden, Venezuela, and England. However, the supply has become increasingly rare.
Specular Hematite carries all of the effects of Hematite while also offering the ability to ground higher vibrations into the physical plane. This is due in part to the root and crown chakras becoming open and connecting themselves. Both of these chakras are on opposite points of the body, making it extremely difficult to solidify a link between the two. In doing so, we can bring our thoughts and desires down to Mother Earth so that she may help them come to fruition. She is of great assistance and can push us in specific directions, ultimately helping our path towards individuality.
When using Specular Hematite, the higher echelons of the universe can start to have a greater effect on your physical body and day to day life. As we traverse our journey through self-discovery, we learn who we are and the path that we are to follow. This unique showcase is something that can be displayed in the form of synchronicities, deja vu experiences, or through the dream realm. During these experiences, it may feel as though you may have “been here before” or had a similar encounter in life. This is a small ripple in time that should serve as a reminder to continue on the path that you are headed and to follow the signs of your spirit guides.
Spirituality is often something that we feel nervous to express to others. Our confidence transcends to all aspects of our lives and being a full-hearted practitioner will only yield greater results. We must truly put all of our energy and beliefs into what we are doing. There is no need to be afraid of judgment from others as this is your OWN journey, not theirs. Society has placed unneeded restrictions on certain belief systems and this may be due to fear or misunderstandings. That is where a spiritual being such as yourself can play a role here on earth, by helping and advising others on their own spiritual mission. Specular Hematite helps us connect to all the other spiritual workers around the world. Imagine this stone as a pocket amulet capable of providing answers to the questions directly in front of you. We must take this journey of life one step at a time. Allow the weight and visual effects of this stone to be a reminder of that!
