What do Hematite and clear quartz do when worn together

Resolved Question:

I am going to make a pendant with a large wand of hematite with three small slivers of quartz wrapped on it and I am wondering what effect it will have on me.

Hi there!

As a geologist, I would say they won't have any "effect" on you, since they are simply minerals. (Hematite is iron oxide and quartz is silicon dioxide.)

If you are looking for a more "medicine man" answer, you can say that the hematite will promote circulation, improve kidney function, and lessen headaches. The quartz acts to amplify the effect of the hematite. (http://www.lollybeads.com/Hsb.htm)

Finally, if you are looking for the "astrology" answer, the hematite will reflect any negative energy back at the person who is trying to send it to you. It dissolves issues that come up in confrontations. The quartz increases mental clarity, clears your mind, and improves creativity. It can deflect radiation from going into your body. (http://www.astrologyzine.com/crystal-6.shtml)

Let me know if you have any questions...

Hehe :)

Glad to help.

I'd be happy to provide a lot more info on the geology of these two minerals, if you are interested.

give me what you have on them. I love hematite and have earings and a necklace made with hematite and garnet beads.

Ok:

Hematite:

Chemically it is very similar (or even the same) as rust, which is also iron oxide! When ground into a fine powder, it is reddish, and that is where its name comes from -- the Greek word for blood is haima. Hematite is mined commercially as iron ore. It typically forms in areas where there were hot springs or volcanic activity.

Before it is polished, it looks like this: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/c/cd/Hematite09.jpg

Quartz:
Quartz crystals can be found in many colors, due to slight impurities in the silca crystal structure. This means that rose quartz, smoky quartz, clear quartz, and amethyst are really all the same mineral, just with trace amounts of impurities that give it the various colors. Sand on the beach is typically tiny grains of quartz. Quartz also makes up about half of granite (you can see the quartz crystals if you look closely at granite). When electricity is applied to quartz, it vibrates at a known frequency, so it is used in clocks. Quartz is the second most common mineral on Earth, after feldspar (some would say third, if you count ice as a mineral, which it technically is). Quartz/sand is commonly used to make glass.

Garnet:
The chemical makeup of garnet is much more complicated than quartz or hematite. It usually contains two metals plus silicon and oxygen. The actual metals in it determine its color and properties. Garnet can be used to cut steel.

Have you ever seen green garnet? ... it's quite nice: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/08/Uwarowit%2C_Rosja.jpg

Let me know if you have any further questions.
If not, thanks for pressing "Accept".
