Hematite is one of the most common minerals, being the principle ore of iron. The color of most red rock, like sandstone, is caused by small amounts of hematite. Although usually black in jewelry, it may also be responsible for the red color of garnet and ruby. All non-crystalline forms of hematite are transformations of the mineral Limonite that lost water, possibly due to heat. Hence the recent excitement of the discovery of grey hematite on the planet Mars, suggesting there was once water present. Only well formed hematite crystals are cut and polished into cabochons for jewelry, beads, and ornaments.
