Hematite is not only the most important iron ore, but also a great gemstone! When Hematite is processed, the grinding water turns blood red - and from the Greek word "hemateios" = "bloody" Hematite has its name.

Hematite has been very important for the development of life on earth: The mineral occurs in very large quantities as banded iron ore. This was formed when iron dissolved in the oceans reacted with oxygen to form Hematite about 2 - 3.5 billion years ago and was deposited on the ocean floor. When the iron was completely bound in the Hematite, oxygen was able to accumulate in the Earth's atmosphere. New creatures that breathed oxygen were able to evolve. This banded iron ore is an important raw material needed for the production of iron, which is needed in cars, in tools, nails and many other things. Take a look around your neighborhood and notice how many things contain iron - at least in small amounts!
