Information about Hematite

The mineral form of iron oxide – it crystallises into a distinct lattice structure with a remarkable black, steel or silver-gray colour. It was a very popular jewellery making material in the Victorian era, especially for what was known as mourning jewellery.

It is popular today for its smooth metallic feel and lustrous shine. Australian tourists shops sell a lot of pendants and necklaces made of this mineral – as a lot of Australias mineral wealth is based on vast amounts of Iron Ore.

It should not be confused with Hematine, an artificially created stone intended to resemble the natural mineral. Magnetic Hematite is another fake stone intended to copy the mineral – but it is an artificial magnetic ferrous material.
