REAL ” BLOODSTONE” Hematite – Fe2O3 . RED GLASS HEAD .
Not to be confused with the so-called “BLUTSTEIN jewelry and tumbled stones, which are offered on the market in masses. THIS material is usually NOT REAL, either it is an iron sintered product or magnetite ironstone.
You can check this very easily. REAL hematite is NOT MAGNETIC! just take a magnet – if it attracts the material, even slightly – it is NOT hematite. In addition, hematite is very hard and brittle and therefore very difficult to grind.
CAUTION: also many other stones – especially in the jewelry sector, are not what they look like.
Place of discovery of this ‘piece is CUMBERLAND in ENGLAND.
