These hematite cabochons are a nice alternative to black onyx with their super shiny finish and will make a beautiful addition to your jewellery designs.
- Cabochon (domed top, flat bottom)
- Available in a range of shapes and sizes
- Sold individually
- NB Some of our 8mm round stones have a flat-edged side rather than a domed edge
Natural hematite is now very hard to come by and comes with a premium price so these cabochons 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.
