Hematite Ankh Symbol (Key Of Life)
This Hematite is unmagnatised
The earliest dated ankh symbol that archeologists have discovered is dated to 3,000 BC or 5,000 years ago, used by the First Egyptian Dynasty. There is evidence, however, that the Ankh was used even before this in Mesopotamia and Persia.
The Ankh is a cross-like symbol with a loop at the top. At first glance, it can be mistaken for the Christian cross, but a closer look will show that it’s quite different. The beauty of the Ankh lies not just in its appearance but in its meaning – life.
Hematite is the mineral form of iron oxide. Much hematite is at least weakly magnetic, although not all. Many of the minerals and rocks sold as "magnetic hematite" are in fact synthetic.
If you're drawn to the Hematite crystal, it could be a sign that you're in need of grounding and balancing in your life. As soon as the Hematite crystal stone touches the skin, you'll feel more centered and calm with its intense but subtle vibrations. While all crystals have powerful grounding effects, the Hematite crystal properties are a gem when it comes to clearing and activating the root chakra, the energy center that anchors us to the earth and provides a feeling of stability.
