NATURAL, Crushed Hematite (Grade A) for Stone Inlay, Mineral Art, or Handmade Jewelry - Powder (select amount)

$14.40 $16.00


This high-quality hematite has a charcoal/black metallic hue with a slight deep red tint. The play of colors is really neat - a must see in person! Hematite is pure iron oxide (Fe203) and has a Mohs hardness that is similar to steel, though the powder will be softer. This particular hematite is from Brazil.

Some fun facts: The ancient Greeks associated hematite with Mars, the god of war. Many warriors, including the ancient Greeks and Romans, used crushed hematite on their bodies to create a dark reddish paint, which was thought to keep them safe in battle. Hematite was believed to make a warrior invulnerable and give them courage and strength. During the Paleolithic Era, early humans created cave paintings using the red pigment from ground-up hematite.

Material Size:
Fine - material is considered to be very fine to powder (silt size).

This product is NOT man-made, mixed with resin, or stabilized. Stone authenticity is extremely important to all artisans; therefore, we validate the source of all our minerals before they are crushed! All of our minerals are handpicked by me (Missy) at some of the largest mineral shows in the United States.

Please see product images for color, approximate size, and quality. Picture taken in full sun - material is dry.
