Hematite is an iron oxide mineral with a hardness of 5 to 6. Its crystal system is hexagonal (trigonal). Its name is derived from the Greek word for blood, a reference to the color of this mineral in powdered form. Crystals are uncommon, but mostly tabular when they do occur. Occasionally they form as rosettes. Most Hematite in the marketplace is massive in form, with a metallic gray color. Hematite can occur as an inclusion in Quartz crystals, sometimes with Ajoite, displaying a reddish brown color.
