A Little History

Is there life on Mars?

From January 2004, Nasa Mars Opportunity Rover spent 14 years exploring the planet Mars, and during this time grey and silvery fragments were found on the surface and it was not until these were examined more carefully that they had discovered they were in fact Hematite.

Hematite is not the sort of mineral that you may expect to find on a planet like Mars as this planet is more like a very dry desert and because it is believed that Hematite can bring on small pools of water that just maybe, Mars may not have always been as dry as it is today.

 Ancient Egyptians would use these Gemstones to prevent the flow of blood and to remove any poisons that were found within the body.
