Magnetic hematite beads are created when simulated hematite is magnetized (natural hematite cannot be magnetized). Similar to magnetite (a naturally-occurring relative of hematite), these semiprecious beads contain iron oxide. Our magnetic hematite beads are polarized on their sides, which makes them handy for "clasping" multiple strands together and for aligning matching bracelets and chokers.
Be aware that magnets can interfere with (or erase) magnetic storage, such as that found on credit cards. Small quantities should not pose a risk, but we recommend that you not set or store large quantities of magnetic hematite beads near items vulnerable to damage. Health benefits attributed to magnetic jewelry include nerve-cell health, boosting the immune system, improved sleep quality, enhanced physical energy, and more. Magnetic jewelry is not recommended for people who are pregnant or who wear a pacemaker.
