Hematite: Healing and Energetic Properties

Hematitealso spelled as haematite, is the mineralform of iron(III) oxide (Fe2O3), one of several iron oxides. Hematite crystallizes in the rhombohedralsystem, and it has the same crystal structure asilmenite and corundum. Hematite and ilmenite form a complete solid solution at temperatures above 950 °C.

Hematite is a mineral, colored black to steel or silver-gray, brown to reddish brown, or red. It is mined as themain ore of iron. Varieties include kidney oremartite(pseudomorphs after magnetite), iron rose andspecularite (specular hematite). While the forms of hematite vary, they all have a rust-red streak. Hematite is harder than pure iron, but much more brittle.Maghemite is a hematite- and magnetite-related oxide mineral.

Huge deposits of hematite are found in banded iron formations. Grey hematite is typically found in places where there has been standing water or mineral hot springs, such as those in Yellowstone National Park in the United States. The mineral can precipitate out of water and collect in layers at the bottom of a lake, spring, or other standing water. Hematite can also occur without water, however, usually as the result ofvolcanic activity.

Clay-sized hematite crystals can also occur as a secondary mineral formed by weathering processes insoil, and along with other iron oxides or oxyhydroxides such as goethite, is responsible for the red color of many tropical, ancient, or otherwise highly weathered soils.
