Core tip: Mirror iron ore (hematite var. Specularite and Quartz) name source Hematite word from Greek haimatestes;

Mirror iron ore (hematite variant, associated with quartz) (Hematite var. Specularite and Quartz)

Name source

The word Hematite, from the Greek haimametes; refers to the blood (Bl00d), symbolizing the color of this mineral;

chemical components

Fe2O3, Fe iron 69.94%, sometimes containing TiO2, SiO2, Al2O3 and other mixed substances

Identification feature

The cherry red streak is the most important feature for the identification of hematite; in addition, the morphology and non-magnetic (except for speclite) can be distinguished from magnetite

Cause of occurrence

Formed in various geological processes, but mainly hydrothermal, sedimentary and sedimentary metamorphism;

Famous place of origin

World famous places include Xuanhua in Hebei, Ningxiang in Hunan, Anshan in Liaoning, E1ba in Italy, St. Gotthard in Switzerland, Victoria in Umber, Cumberland in England, and MinasGexais in Brazil.

Crystal morphology

Complex three-sided triangular faceted crystals; common simplex has parallel double-sided; hexagonal column; rhombohedron,;; hexagonal double cone;
