Natural hematite is now very hard to come by and comes with a premium price so these beads are actually made from the man-made version of the stone (sometimes known as hematine or hemalyke). Virtually all (99%) of hematite currently on the market is actually this man-made version as stocks of the natural stone are so hard to come by – many suppliers will not disclose this or are possibly even unaware of it. This lovely gun-metal colour stone has exactly the same look and all the same properties as natural hematite at a fraction of the cost.
