Cool grey tones can make for a surprisingly sophisticated wedding palette. We suggest taking inspiration from nature – in this case, hematite. A steely grey to black mineral composed of iron oxide, hematite crystals can display a beautiful array of silvery grey shades when the light refracts off of them. Choosing a palette of three varied greys for example, can create a natural and elegant look to plan your wedding around. The cool grey tones are also a fantastic neutral to pair with an accent color – we love light blue, deep red, or amber. You might even like to scatter some actual hematite crystals around the base of a silver cake or among your centerpieces – the gemstones are thought to be grounding and to support mental clarity.
Hematite: one of the most powerful grounding stones, not only protects the aura from negative energies, but is quite instrumental at balancing the body, mind, and spirit; reduces fatigue and spaciness, while also playing a key role in manifestation. – Love and Light Healing School
