Hematite is the mineral form of iron(lll) oxide, and crystallizes in the rhombohedral lattice system. Hematite is opaque, and typically a steel-grey to black when in crystals and crystalline ores, and more of a dull to bright rust red in earthy, compact, fine-grain material. Hematite's name comes from a Latin phrase that means "bloodstone" because when it is found naturally, the iron content is covered in rust. When polished, Hematite takes on a mirror-like sheen.
These Botryoidal Hematite specimens are exceptionally eye-catching with their stunning mirror like sheen and fascinating botryoidal formation! The botryoidal aspect creates a unique domed/bubbling effect, making each of these specimens incredibly ideal for displaying in a collection.
Hematite is thought to be a good stone for assisting in organizing your thoughts, and helping develop logical thinking skills. It is also thought to be a grounding stone because of its close connection with the earth.
