Gemstone of the Week: Hematite
Hematite is an iron ore based gemstone. It is generally black-ish grey stone with a metallic luster, but there is also a rainbow variety that has an iridescent sheen to it due to aluminum phosphate on the surface of the stone. Hematite is highly dense and so has quite a bit of weight to it.
