Hematite History and Uses:
Hematite’s name is derived from the ancient Greek word for blood haima, haimatitēs lithos means “blood-red stone”. When Hematite is mixed with clay it is called red ochre, which when it is ground and powdered makes a red pigment for painting. The oldest evidence of this practice was recently found in Africa where Middle Stone Age people living approx 160,000 years ago ground red ochre to paint their bodies. Hematite was very popular during the Victorian era when it was used to make marcasite jewelry.
