Metaphysical Properties: Magnetite is one of the essential stones for crystal healers because of its many uses in aligning the currents of the auric field and the multiple levels of the energy body. It is excellent for balancing polarities—male and female, physical and spiritual, left and right hemispheres of the brain and a multitude of others. Its natural magnetism occurs as a symmetrical field, which, through resonance, brings one’s own energy fields into like configuration.
