Iridescence in Metamorphic "Rainbow" HematiteGems

May 08, 2021 · Mineral dealer Rock Currier (19402021) was largely responsible for introducing rainbow hematite to the U.S. market. According to notes he published on Mindat, Currier first visited an outcrop of what he called "color rock" from the Andrade mine in João Monlevade, Minas Gerais, Brazil, in 1991 (figure 2; Currier, 2021).
