Iron ores are rich in iron oxides and vary in color from dark grey, bright yellow, deep purple, to rusty red. The iron itself is usually found in the form of magnetite (Fe3O4), hematite (Fe2O3), goethite, limonite or siderite. The name, also spelled as Haematite, originates from the Greek word for blood ‘haima’, because hematite in powdered form can be red.
Because of its color, it is used in the pigment industry (building products and glass).
Other specific characteristics makes it suitable to use in for example foundry applications (in exothermic products and as core additive) and in the welding and oil-drilling industry.
