Dark, but make it sassy.  Deep, dark gray and red, packed full of teeny-tiny sparkles.  This eye-catching stone is made up of aggregate pockets of tiny specular ("mirror-like") hematite flakes or tabular crystals, as well as possible minor traces of Mica.  Flat, satin-finish back with a beveled edge for ease of setting

Please note: This is a very porous stone! Take care to protect the stone's surface during setting & final polishing to avoid damage to/filling in of air pockets across the surface.  Ultrasonic cleaning is not recommended, as this may cause rust and/or disintegration.

Care Instructions


  • Take care to protect the gemstone when setting.
  • Avoid contact with abrasive materials, including polishes.  We have taken great care to bring out the brightest shine possible; using another abrasive may dull your gemstone's finished polish.
  • Avoid acids that could harm your gemstone, such as pickle.
  • Pearls should never be exposed to abrasives or chemicals.
  • Store gemstones in the pouch provided, or in a soft lined container away from other materials that may scratch or break gemstones; this includes other gemstones!


  • It's best to clean most gemstones with warm water and a mild dish soap.
  • Designate a soft toothbrush to use for cleaning.
  • Most gemstones should not be placed in an ultrasonic cleaner or in any jewelry cleaner containing chemicals.  The only gemstones that are generally safe in strong jewelry cleaners are strictly sapphires or diamonds.
