Hematite

There are many forms of hematite. It is commonly found in large solid masses  that can be black, gray, brown, or red. It is also found as botryoidal crystals that look bubbly. We have both botyroidal and massive specimens of hematite.

Hematite is one of several forms of iron oxide. Its chemical formula is Fe2O3.  All forms of hematite have a red streak. It is 5.5 to 6.5 on the Mohs hardness scale. It can have a metallic luster and because it will take a high polish it is sometimes used to make jewelry. Hematite is mined as an iron ore.
