Hematite is a very abundant mineral on Earth.  Its environment can be magmatic, hydrothermal, metamorphic or sedimentary, but most often it is the latter and is formed after eons of inhabiting water or moisture-filled areas.  A very notable region for obtaining this metallic wonder is the area adjacent to Lake Superior and most notably in Minnesota.  Other notable occurrences are Canada, England, Mexico, Brazil and Australia.  Aside from its usual reddish or metallic gray form, Hematite also comes in several different varieties.   Tiger Iron is comprised of alternating layers of Hematite, Chert, Red Jasper, and occasionally Tiger Eye Quartz.  Hematite Rose is an arrangement of bladed crystals formed in a circular pattern and appearing rose-like.  And Specularite is a flaky micaceous ornamental specimen, appearing a sparkling silver gray.  When used in jewelry, this latter variety has been nicknamed the "Black Diamond."
