Hematite Magnetic Bracelets

Hematite, pronounced hee-muh-tahyt or hem-uh-tahyt, is a black, iron-rich mineral stone that commands a sizeable - and devoted - following, among magnetic jewelry enthusiasts, both for its strikingly unique, stylish looks, and its unique magnetic therapy function (see below).

Hematite magnetic bracelets are a little different from our other magnetic bracelets. While our other magnetic braclets feature embedded neodymium magnets, hematite magnetic bracelets have, as their magnetic component, the hematite itself. In other words, the hematite IS the magnet (remember, it contains plenty of iron, so it can be magnetized).

This brings me to an important point to mention. As you are probably aware, magnets have two poles, north and south. Many believe that it makes a big difference as to which pole is facing the skin. For all of our magnetic bracelets, with exception of the hematite magnet bracelets, the north pole is the part that faces the skin (unless otherwise noted, of course). There are many that argue that this is the best approach to take with magnetic bracelets, in terms of the actual magnetic therapy. With the hematite magnetic bracelets, however, you get essentially a "mix" of north and south pole facing the skin, since the individual hematite beads actually rotate while on your wrist. This is a very unique aspect to consider, and there are some who swear by this type of magnetic therapy.

Which is better? That's a tough question to answer, and it's something you'll really have to try for yourself. Thankfully, we offer a 60 day satisfaction guarantee, so you can always switch among magnetic bracelet styles until you've found what works for you.

To summarize, the advantages of hematite magnetized bracelets are:

    • They are visually unique, and appeal to many

    • They offer a different approach to magnetic therapy

    • They are very economical

Fun fact: hematite was found to be in abundance on at least two sites on the planet Mars.
