Magnetite has a powerful positive and negative polarity. This gemstone works with biomagnetic fields and meridians to ground, energize, or temporarily sedate the body, as well as align chakras. A magnetite specimen can provide a soft, gentle energy that balances and stabilizes the forces around you into a harmonious whole. This is an attractive stone that aids telepathy, meditation, and visualization.
