Properties: A mixture of iron and tungsten, ferberite is so grounding, it leaves you feeling virtually nailed to the floor. Iron ores such as hematite are known for their grounding and protecting qualities. Combined with tungsten, which has the highest melting point and greatest tensile strength (at high temperatures) of all metals, and you have an energy which shields and protects beyond almost any other mineral, making us feel virtually impervious to outside forces. Physically, ferberite strengthens and purifies the blood, and can be used to treat anaemia.
