Hematite Mineral Specimen for SaleHematite

   
Rocks, Minerals, and FossilsHematite (Fe2O3), the most important iron ore, has an extremely variable appearance.  It can be black, gray, silver, brown, or red; its luster can range from metallic to earthy, and its forms include micaceous, massive, crystalline, fibrous, botryoidal, and others.  All Hematite, however, produces a characteristic red streak when rubbed across unglazed white porcelain, which is why Hematite gets its name from the Greek word for blood.

Most large Hematite deposits formed in sedimentary environments, but Hematite is also found in metamorphic and igneous rocks.  NASA has even discovered Hematite on Mars!  Many rocks and soils on the Martian surface contain Hematite, explaining why Mars is called the "Red Planet". 

The Hematite specimens on this page may be "out of this world," but they're from Morocco, not Mars.  They display Hematite's classical botryoidal habit, a mineral habit in which the mineral displays a globular external form resembling a bunch of grapes.  Botryoidal comes from the Greek word meaning (you guessed it!) "having the form of a bunch of grapes."
