Natural Hematite an Ore of Iron


Rough hematite mineral sourced from South Africa.  This gun-metal grey coloured mineral exhibits a metallic lustre and its crystals reflect light beautifully. 

Hematite the mineral form of iron oxide was first named by Theophrastus (Ancient Greek philosopher and successor to Aristotle) around 300 BC. He named it "haimatitēs lithos" meaning "blood-red stone" which is believed to have come about because of its vivid red streak. In mineralogy "streak" refers to the powdery residue that's left behind when a mineral is dragged across a surface known as a scratch plate.

The root of the word hematite (which may also be spelt haematite and is pronounced heematite), is also present in the word hemoglobin (haemoglobin) which is the protein in red blood cells that contains iron and is responsible for transporting oxygen around the body.

Hematite is a relatively hard iron oxide and an important ore of iron, its iron content is approximately 70%.

In crystal healing hematite is used to control disorders of the blood and to help stop bleeding but it's also beneficial for mental attunement, memory and for helping dissolve negativity.
