Rainbow Hematite Crystal
Description: Rainbow Hematite Crystal. Rainbow hematite, also known as “iridescent hematite” or “hematite rainbow,” is a variation of hematite (a common iron oxide mineral) that exhibits a range of colorful, metallic-like reflections or iridescence on its surface. This iridescence is typically due to thin layers of oxidized minerals, creating a play of colors similar to those seen in a rainbow.
The colors often seen on the surface of rainbow hematite can include shades of purple, blue, green, gold, and sometimes even hints of red or pink. This vibrant display of colors can give the mineral a captivating and enchanting appearance.
