The Santa Eulalia Mining District lies in central Chihuahua, Mexico. It has been in nearly continuous production for over three centuries (1703-present) and ranks as one of Mexico's chief silver and base metal producers with over a half billion troy ounces of silver and nearly 6 million tonnes of lead and zinc recovered. The City of Chihuahua was built by Spanish pioneers on the riches emanating from Santa Eulalia over the first 200 years of mining and, although modern industry now dominates Chihuahua's economy.
Hematite is the mineral form of iron oxide. Hematite is the oldest known iron oxide mineral that has ever formed on earth, and is widespread in rocks and soils. Hematite is colored black to steel, silver-gray, brown to reddish brown, or red and is rated between 5.5 and 6.5 on the Mohs hardness scale. Hematite is metaphysically referred to as a grounding stone, thought to help to develop will power, and often utilized for dream work.
Red Calcite is a stone of 'soft vitality' in the sense that it energizes the base chakra and brings in additional life force energy, yet it does so in a subtle way with no discomfort. This stone also links the base chakra with the crown, bridging the frequent 'gap' between physical existence and spiritual life.
