Haematite

 

Origin: South America, Brazil

 

Hematite is an iron ore mineral and it has been used by people as a pigment for at least 40 000 years. Hematite is harder than pure iron, but much more brittle. The most important Hematite deposits formed in sedimentary environments ca. 2.4 billion years ago.

 

We sell very attractive larger-sized tumbled stones. Pieces you can hold and feel in your hand. Our stones are categorised in mainly three sizes, small (ca. 25 to 35 mm & 10 to 25 grams), medium (ca. 30 to 40 mm and 25 to 35 grams) and large (ca. 35 to 55 mm and 35 to 80 grams). Our small is generally larger than the sizes usually found. Please note that these sizes are only indication as some may be smaller and others larger.
