This hematite mala bead necklace is a perfect tool to help you feel and stay grounded. It's also a great stone crystal to help you balance your life.
Connected to the Root Chakra, hematite is believed to help its wearers better attach themselves to the Earth. Its naturally heavy nature aids in this mental and physical connection to the world. The noticeable heft and density of this crystal serve as constant reminders to you of what it is trying to help you achieve.
We call this mala Parvata Lohitah, based on the Sanskrit words for "mountain" and "red."
The "mountain" aspect is easy enough to discern (being so firmly rooted and connected to the Earth), but the "red" part of the name does take a little greater understanding of the hematite stone.
Hidden like the lifeblood and energy that flow through your own body, hematite actually becomes a red powder when ground.
Long used by the Greeks to produce red-colored chalk, the transformation from the gray/black hue of hematite into an earthly blood red color serves as a wonderful reminder of the inner energy and lifeblood that bring life to us all.
If you're seeking better balance or grounding in your spiritual or temporal life, then this 108 hematite bead mala, worn as a necklace or a bracelet, should be a fantastic aid to that journey in realigning your life.
Each bead is approximately 8mm in diameter, but there may be some variation in this due to the handmade nature of this mala.
Even if you feel your life is grounded and balanced currently, if you're drawn to this stone, then your mind and spirit may be trying to tell you that you could still use some additional support in your life.
