It has its name because of this color. From Greek haimatites – “like a blood”. Secondly, scientists found hematite on Mars!

In Ancient Rome, women used hematite as a mirror, and during the birth clamped in their fingers hematite rosary to protect themselves from bleeding.
Indians of North America used hematite to extract red paint. Going to the war, they painted the face with its powder. At the same time, they believed that such “hematite makeup” makes them invulnerable to enemies.
In Medieval Europe hematite gained popularity among magicians and warlocks, who considered the stone the most powerful amulet against attacks of evil spirits. Later, European miners began sewing on their clothes hematite buttons. The mineral turned red when explosive methane was accumulating in the air and saved their lives.
