Specular Hematite (also called Specularite) is a variety of Hematite with a shimmering, silvery surface and a black undertone that sometimes comes across as grey or navy blue. This stone includes traces of mica within its makeup and usually has a very distinct metallic lustre although it can occur in dull formations as well. It has a hardness of 5.5-6.5 and can be found worldwide but primarily in USA, Canada, Italy, Brazil, Switzerland, Sweden, Venezuela, and England.
Specular Hematite carries the same general properties as Hematite but takes it further into the realm of spirit. This stone stimulates the root and crown, forming a strong link between them to raise the lower, grounded frequencies and to ground the higher, spiritual frequencies. Specular Hematite awakens one to their true spirit while here on Earth, encouraging those who work with it to be their true selves without fear of judgement. The vibrations of this stone take one beyond any norms or assumptions of what a true spiritual path is, allowing one to freely form their own path through unique self expression of spirit. This stone reminds us that we have all come into this life with our own gifts and talents, and encourages us to express them freely.
Specular Hematite is particularly helpful for identifying one’s own unique talents and how they can be used in any situation or endeavor. When carrying or wearing this stone one may begin to notice their talents and visions shining outward whether going through day to day activities or working on specific projects - and others will notice this as well. This is very helpful for living each day in alignment with one’s true spirit and bringing your visions of this spirit into reality. Specular Hematite pushes us to do that which brings us true joy and to bring our manifestations to reality through this joy. It tells us to reach for the stars despite what other people (or even our own limiting thoughts) might think or say. Just looking in into its glimmering, star-like patterns reminds one that the stars aren’t as far away as we may think.
Specular Hematite is a part of a group of stones we call bridge builders; stones that have the ability to create a bridge between the physical and spiritual realms. Some others in this group that work particularly well with Specular hematite are Charoite, Marcasite, Covellite, and Nebula Stone. Each of these stones bridges and interlays the two realms in their own unique ways. Specular Hematite does this by pulling down high frequency energies, firmly grounding them into the physical realm, and helping to integrate them into everyday reality. This integration occurs through enhanced practicality, mental clarity, and physical strength. Specular Hematite physically shifts vibrations of both the subtle and physical bodies directly in the Earthly plane. It also assists in comprehending multiple levels of reality, opening the doors to endless possibilities.
Emotionally, this stone is an incredible ally in releasing feelings of self-blame (especially in regards to spiritual growth). It also helps one to find their true self-worth and to fully embody it in daily life. On a physical level, Specular Hematite energizes the hemoglobin of the blood (all the way down to the rhombic prismatic crystals in the blood) and is very beneficial for anemia and blood disorders. It is a stone that truly works beyond the physical level by integrating light energy into the body, making it easier to incorporate high frequency energy into the body. This stone counteracts electromagnetic energies and is recommended for those who work around computers or other electronic objects; it is a perfect stone to place on a computer desk.
