Hematite Tumble Stone




Hematite is the most important ore of iron. Although it was once mined at thousands of locations around the world, today almost all of the production comes from a few dozen large deposits where significant equipment investments allow companies to efficiently mine and process the ore. Most ore is now produced in China, Australia, Brazil, India, Russia, Ukraine, South Africa, Canada, Venezuela, and the United States.

The mineral is used to produce pigments, preparations for heavy media separation, radiation shielding, ballast, and many other products.

These stones are sold individually and in 2.5LB bags with stone size options of Medium which measure approximately 1/2" and Large which measures approximately 1".

Why we love these:  The luster of these beauties is variable and can range from metallic to earthy, giving them beautiful diversity!
