Handmade Mens Bracelet ~ Hematite Beaded Chakra Bracelet
This mens hipster bracelet is perfect for the spring/summer jewelry trends. I have used gunmetal black Hematite beads (10mm) and a rectangular Goldstone faceted bead (16mm long). I have stung it using doubled up Powercord@ stretch cord and it fits a size 8 to 10 inch (20 to 23cm) wrist depending on how tight you like your bracelets.
Hematite is a stone that is most commonly -- and most strongly -- used to ground or stabilize and for protection. Emotionally, hematite decreases negativity. Physically it has been used in complementary crystal healing to cool the body, blood disorders, Raynaud's Syndrome, nervous problems, stress and insomnia, spinal alignment, broken bones, and is also an excellent stone for anxiety relief. Hematite is associated with the root (base) chakra, Muladhara.
Goldstone, also called the "Stone of Ambition" is said to help attain one's goals. Goldstone is also said to help one stay calm and stabilize the emotions. It can be used as an energy generator and can deflect unwanted energies, making it useful as a protection stone. Goldstone also has many of the metaphysical properties of copper, including in crystal healing lore the strengthening of the circulatory system, strengthening bones, and easing arthritis pain.
