Description

Hematite is ground from a heavy silvery-black mineral rich in iron. In a thick wash, the heavier particles settle, creating bold granulation. In a thin wash, it is a soft dove gray.

Hematite or the traditional Greek name, Bloodstone - when you paint, you can almost feel the pounding of the battle drums as ancient warriors covered their bodies with Hematite in the belief that they would be protected from mortal wounds. According to lore ad superstition, large surface deposits of Hematite mark the site of hard fought battles, where the blood of fallen soldiers flowed into the ground.

Just love the granulation and have found it great for landscapes especially for doing rocks on the beach. I have a feeling of being like a magician every time I use it....just add water and watch the action! The variation of colour is vast depending on the amount of dilution with water......like have 4-5 different tubes of watercolour.
