Hematite

Hematite - the blue colour is as shot and is the result of an iridescent tarnish giving it a bright blue colour most noticeably on the edges. There are several spots in the image that show a deep red as the crystals are thin enough to transmit some light.

Hematite is one of the most common minerals. The colour of most red and brown rock, such as sandstone, is caused by small amounts of Hematite. It is also responsible for the red colour of many minerals. Non-crystalline forms of Hematite may be transformations of the mineral Limonite that lost water, possibly due to heat.

Subject: What? You want WHAT?

We appreciate the notion that science is the new sexy, though we’re not sure how those things correlate. We tried to come up with material - that we also deem appropriate for publishing - that would fit your requirement of tall, dark and handsome in regards to pictures of Commander Spock. 

Sincerely
