Hematite Hematite, an iron oxide, derives its name from the Greek word for blood, since it is red when sliced thinly or powdered. Hematite is one of very few gemstones with a metallic luster. Hematite is always opaque and is typically a blackish grey. When highly polished it can sometimes look like silver. Hematite is a remarkably dense material, with a specific gravity much higher than corundum or zircon.

man their gems are pretty good, and the prices aren't to bad either, I like checking out hte gems on there website, beceause the pictures of the gems are taken pretty well, and you can see the table, and the facets.
I love gemselect and I have bought a fair amount from them. The only complaint I have is not being able to save gems. I have a lot of projects so i am in the market for a lot of different gems and it's so disappointing to have to delete them all just to purchase one or two that I have saved in my cart.
