Amethyst is the purple variety of quartz crystal composed of silicon dioxide with traces of iron.
As a healing stone it is said to be helpful in ridding nightmares. Also helpful to calm an overworked and over stressed mind. It is thought to dispel negativity and create a peaceful environment.
Hematite is polished oxide of iron and is heavily distributed in rocks and soils. It is colored black to steel or silver-gray, brown to reddish brown, or red. Hematite usually precipitates out of water and collects in layers at the bottom of lakes, springs or other standing waters. Usually when it occurs in the absence of water it is the result of volcanic activity.
Hematite is known as a "stone for the mind". It brings mental organization and is very grounding and calming. It helps with original and logical thinking and decreases negativity. Use it to help balance the body/mind/spirit. Physically it has been used to keep the body cool, to decrease blood disorders, nervous problems and insomnia.
Bears are known for everything from being cuddly and playful to stoic and strong. In the spirit kingdom the bear is emblematic of grounding forces and strength. All in all, the bear is a magnificent creature to be respected.
