Hematite Mineral Description Hematite is an iron oxide mineral of the Oxides and Hydroxides group with structural formula alpha Fe 2 O 3 The structure is similar to that of corundum and consists essentially of a dense arrangement of Fe 3 ions in octahedral coordination with oxygens in hexagonal closest packing The structure can also be described as the stacking of sheets of octahedraly
