These hematite round beads are a nice alternative to black onyx for your beading designs and are a brilliant staple bead as they go with so many other gemstones. They make for a really modern design when combined with black onyx or crystal quartz and also look brilliant combined with silver beads and findings

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 gunmetal colour stone has exactly the same look and all the same properties as natural hematite at a fraction of the cost.
