Mineralogy of Hematite Quartz
Color: Red Hematite enclosed in transparent Quartz
Transparency: Transparent to opaque
Location: Hematite is found in numerous deposits around the world. Hematite Quartz, however, is much more rare and is found in Brazil and Madagascar.
Rock Type: Hematite Quartz is not a mineral, but rather a rock. An easy way to understand the difference is that rocks are like cookies and minerals are ingredients like flour or sugar. Many different minerals are used to create a rock! In the case of Hematite Quartz, two minerals are combined, red Hematite, an Oxide mineral and Clear Quartz, a Silicate Mineral.
Formation: Hematite Quartz is created when Clear Quartz has inclusions of Hematite inside it. While Hematite is more commonly known as a shiny silver mineral, when it is an inclusion it takes on a dusky red color.
Mining: Hematite is the most important of all Iron ores, because it contains up to 70% pure Iron. It is also fairly abundant and relatively easy to mine. Most Hematite is mined in large pit mine operations, with the primary purpose of mining Iron. In the case of Hematite Quartz, however, the deposits are much smaller, and the purpose of the mine is extract a variety of Quartz minerals.
Enhancements: All Hematite Quartz is natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting, and polishing.

I first met the owner of the lapidary at the 2006 Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona. At that time I was working for a crystal shop in Utah and was at Tucson primarily as a “pack mule” to help carry all the stones. It was generally agreed by our crew that the “Madagascar” tent contained the most beautiful stones in the entire show.
In 2014, I embarked on my first buying trip for Moonrise Crystals. The company I knew of only as “Madagascar” was the one company I was most determined to find and buy from. This lapidary company only sells at a handful of major gem shows. The only time they are in the USA is for the Tucson Gem Show. During the rest of the year, the lapidary hand polishes their stock and also does charity work in their local community. They continue to offer some of the most beautiful tumbled stones in the industry and are among my favorite suppliers.
In 2019, Moonrise Crystals and the Madagascar lapidary company joined together to financially support a rural school in Madagascar.
