A botryoidal texture is one in which the mineral has an external form composed of many rounded segments, named for the Ancient Greek βότρυς, meaning "a bunch of grapes". While this hematite may look like a cluster of shiny black grapes, it probably makes some terrible (and probably toxic) wine. This is a common form for many minerals, particularly hematite and malachite, which are known for frequently forming botryoidal masses. 

Hematite is the mineral form of iron oxide, one of several iron oxides. This magnetic mineral's name is derived from the Greek word for blood: underneath its smooth, metallic surface is a deep red-colored mineral. Hematite generally originates by precipitating in layers at the bottom of lakes and other bodies of water, but it is also formed from volcanic activity. In 2001, hematite was discovered on the surface of Mars!


According to metaphysics: Hematite stimulates concentration and focus, enhancing memory and original thought. Hematite grounds and protects; it strengthens our connection with the earth, giving a safe and secure feeling. Hematite utilizes the magnetic qualities to balance the body and to provide a stable equilibrium.
