Quartz with hematite is a type of rock that contains both quartz and the mineral hematite. Hematite is an iron oxide mineral that typically appears as a black or dark red metallic mineral. The presence of hematite in quartz can give the quartz a reddish or pinkish tint. These types of rocks can form through a variety of processes, including hydrothermal alteration, weathering, and the precipitation of hematite from hot fluids circulating through fractures in quartz-rich rocks. Hematite-bearing quartz rocks are common in many parts of the world, including in iron-mining districts.
Clear quartz is one of the most abundant minerals in the world and is rated at a 7 on the Mohs hardness scale. It can be found in many forms such as tumbled, carved and rough. It can develop in a wide range of environments and can be found on every continent. Clear quartz is thought metaphysically to promote understanding, clarity, and is associated with inner strength.
Hematite, also spelled as haematite, is the mineral form of iron oxide. Hematite is the oldest known iron oxide mineral that has ever formed on earth, and is widespread in rocks and soils. Hematite is colored black to steel, silver-gray, brown to reddish brown, or red and is rated between 5.5 and 6.5 on the Mohs hardness scale. Hematite is metaphysically referred to as a grounding stone, thought to help to develop will power, and often utilized for dream work.
