An abundance of hematite in Martian rocks and surface materials gives the landscape a reddish brown color and is why the planet appears red in the night sky. It is the origin of Mars' "Red Planet" nickname.

China, Australia, Brazil, India, Russia, Ukraine, South Africa, and the United States are the world’s leading producers of iron ore (includes hematite, magnetite, and other ores). Iron ore production in the United States occurs in Michigan and Minnesota.

Hematite draws out illness from the body and is considered an all-around healer. It is said to cam the nerves and clear the mind, providing stability and courage in psychic and spiritual work.
