Hematite PalmStone 115g
Hematite is a red oxide of iron, like iron rust. The name hematite comes from the Greek word haima, or ema, meaning ‘blood,’ as it shows a blood-red colour when cut into thin slices. As such, hematite is also called ‘bloodstone.’ Sometimes, when the stone has a layered appearance, like the petals of a flower, it’s called ‘iron rose’.
Hematite has a long history as a material with many different uses. Hematite crystals that are shiny have traditionally been used in mirrors, and are sometimes called specular hematite. From 2500 BC to 500 BC, hematite was used to make cylindrical seals. Hematite has also been ground and powdered, and used by artists as a pigment, or for polishing. In fact, powdered hematite was used by prehistoric men for cave paintings, by the Egyptians to decorate the tombs of pharaohs, and by Native Americans as war paint. Today, it is still used as a pigment, as well as a metal polishing powder called ‘jeweller’s rouge.’
Hematite is a dark, blackish-grey opaque stone with a metallic lustre. It has extremely high brilliance and shine and takes a metallic polish that can look silver, pure black, or gunmetal blue. Hematite rates a 6.5 on the hardness scale. Thick crystals are suitable for cutting into gemstones. It is popular for jewellery, however, because of its high density, pieces can be heavy. Hematite is used for ornamental pieces, as well as fashioning into necklace beads, pendants and rings. It can also be engraved and has always been popular for carving cameo pieces known as intaglio. Hematite’s value is low, but beautifully engraved pieces are highly valued.
