Up to 70% of hematite is iron, making this mineral high-quality iron ore. Lately, it has been rather tricky to obtain hematite for jewellery. The reason is the highly automatized mining that makes it impossible to divide quality material from the one used for industrial purposes. That is why all hematite – regardless of its quality, ends up in furnaces.

Stone´s uniqueness: Big, quality, solid pieces from Brazilian sites are emblematic of their metallic lustre, for which they are popular in jewellery. Typically, we offer B quality hematite, because the A quality is highly demanded and we do not always have it in stock.

Special conditions/ treatment: Please, do not treat hematite with chemical substances as it may lose its lustre.

About the product: The product is packed in firm plastic bags.
