n.
A black or blackish-red to brick-red mineral, essentially Fe2O3, the chief ore of iron.

[Middle English emathite, ematites, from Latin haematītēs, from Greek (lithos) haimatītēs, bloodlike (stone), from haima, haimat-, blood.]

(ˈhɛmətaɪt) or

haematite

n
(Minerals) a red, grey, or black mineral, found as massive beds and in veins and igneous rocks. It is the chief source of iron. Composition: iron (ferric) oxide. Formula: Fe2O3. Crystal structure: hexagonal (rhombohedral). Also called: iron glance
