Hematite is a non-magnetic iron oxide, with a hardness of 5 to 6. It is known to be the most important iron ores. It is rather variable in its appearance, it can be in reddish brown, ocherous masses, or in dark silver-grey scaled masses. They all have in common is rust-red streak. Where hematite can be located is usually in Germany or Canada.
Chrysocolla is a minor ore of copper. It is known for its cyan blue color & is commonly. This mineral is commonly found with malachite, quartz, & azurite. It is commonly confused with turquoise because of its color.
To me this piece is extremely interesting. The origin of Chrysocolla originates from the Greek words (chrysos kolla) or "gold glue" where in ancient times they would use the mineral to solder gold.
This piece is very interesting to me. Usually you see hematite that is super dense & are hexagonal scalenohedral whereas this specimen is flat. The metallic luster of the Hematite and blue hint of the Chrysocolla remind me of flying low over a lake. It is just a beautiful piece.
Hematite is especially known for being its grounding properties & is amazing for neutralizing bad energy & turning it into a positive vibration. It is especially good for for your root chakra. Hematite is amazing to help one maintian self-control.
