It exhibits a hardness of 6 on the Moh’s scale and can be found in Arizona in the United States, where it is mined. It is striking in appearance, with its beautiful mixture of black and gold occurring in dramatic patterns.
Healer’s gold is considered to be a helpful ally for healers. This is because it is believed to boost the energy of both the healer and the receiver during a healing session.

Many claim that magnetite also emits a mysterious, attractive energy that summons love, good fortune and power, and that it guards us against infidelity. In keeping healer’s gold as a companion, you may notice that you are feeling more decisive and that your outlook is becoming more positive. It may instill in you feelings of peace and harmony and strengthen your will.
