Hematite was named about 300-325 BCE by Theophrastus from Greek, for blood stone. Translated in 79 by Pliny the Elder to haematites, "bloodlike", in allusion to the vivid red colour of the powder. Hematite can be reddish brown, dark silvery-grey scaled masses, silvery-grey to black crystals, and dark-grey masses, to name a few. What they all have in common is a rust-red streak.

Hematite has been used in burials in Neolithic cultures, where bones have been, colored with red ochre (Hematite), and reburied. Ancient Greeks associated iron with the god Aries (Mars in the Roman pantheon), the god of war, and soldiers rubbed Hematite over their bodies before battle to make them invulnerable, but hematite powder would have also colored their skin red, and so used to frighten their enemies.
