HEMATITE FACETED 925 STERLING SILVER JEWELLERY
Hematites are frequently used to manufacture cameos, intaglios, sculptures, beads, and cabochons. These opaque, semi-metallic stones may occasionally be faceted, with flat bases and few facets, at the request of gem aficionados (like classic marcasite). Hematites are both tough and brittle, with a hardness ranging from 5 to 6.5. Use protective settings for ring stones to safeguard them from bumps and scratches. Other applications, such as necklaces or brooches, should not necessitate any additional safeguards.
