A beautiful forest of gemmy and lustrous crystals of Quartz with Hematite inclusions. The golden and brassy Pyrite forms in extremely well-crystallized pyritohedrons, growing beneath and above the beautiful pinkish-red sparkly crystals of Quartz. A very aesthetic and showy piece!
The prevalence of Hematite in red color is due to oxidized iron in general. Hematite had been used as red pigment for paintings at Gramalote, an early Initial Period (1500–1200 cal. B.C.) maritime community in the north coast of Peru.
Hematite is a very protective stone and helps to absorb negative energy and calms in times of worry. It is one of the best Root Chakra crystals as it neutralizes the harmful effects by balancing and aligning all seven chakras, transforming negative energies into a more positive vibration.
Clear Quartz is the most popular and versatile healing crystal of all and is able to work on any condition. It stimulates the immune system and brings the body into balance.
Pyrite also is a powerful protection stone which shields the user from any negative vibrations and energy. It stimulates the intellect and enhances memory, helping to recall relevant information when needed.
