Hematite from China is best known in combination in bladed form with fine quartz crystals from Guang Dong.  There are other locations, as well, producing fine hematite crystals in China.

OKA-782 Quartz/ Hematite Guang Dong, China. Slender, well formed quartz crystals with blooms of hematite blades that create their matrix plates. Some of these are clear Arkansas like quartz while others are distinctive, almost red, hematite included crystals. This material is seldom without damage...a fact that we will have to live with until the start doing a better job of recovery at this site. The specimens look great because the missing points are usually along the edges of the piece where one would expect damage anyway. Hematites vary greatly in quality and are 1 to 2.5 cm per blade. Very expensive material that has not come down in price since its introduction to the market several years ago.

OKA-782D 8 x 6 x 4 cm grouping of clear quartz to 5 cm each on very clean, high luster hematite. Minimal edge damage, probably would be considered damage free to most collectors. 115$

OKA-782E3 This is a tiny 6 x 4 cm plate with 4 large (to over 7 cm) crystal radiating up and side ways from the matrix. Very nice. 95$
