Limonite is an iron oxide that is often formed in shallow marine sediments. Limonite is actually not scientifically considered to be a true mineral. It does not have a definitive chemical formula or crystal structure, you generally see limeonite coating other minerals. When this occurs it is known as a pseudomorph. It has a medium hardness of 4-5.5. Limonite has been used throughout history as a pigment to create the color ocher & still continues into today.
I love how dark and dense this piece is. Limonite is coating over other minerals so I am very curious as to what is under this limonite!
Metaphysically, limonite is believed to help ground as well move persons being toward stability. It also is known for being a stone of intuition as well!
