Hermatie Gemstone Guide

Hematite Gemstone

Hematite is a mineral. It is a form of iron oxide found in igneous rocks as a dark opaque material with a metallic lustre and iridescent surface. With its black to steel grey colour and sometimes reddish brown hue, Hematite is often used in fashion jewellery. The hematite jewellery at H. Samuel includes fashion bracelets and earrings.

Sourcing hematite

Hematite is mainly sourced from North America, Brazil, Venezuela, and England.

Caring for hematite

Hematite is harder than pure iron but it is also a brittle gemstone. It is almost glass-like and can easily be scratched so store hematite separately to other jewellery in a small pouch to prevent damage. To keep your hematite jewellery shiny, wash with a mild soapy water and soft cloth. Avoid putting on perfume and other cosmetic lotions on after you have put your jewellery on.
