They were pretty similar just a little difference in the thickness.

The ones I saw were quite well matched too.

Just saw hematites. Sad that I probably will have to wait till someone is selling it on FB cuz I hate the local dealers or order online!

Ditto. I can wait on them, though. I think it adds something special...another level of complexity to a finished piece.

I have to have them as soon as I get paid. I hope that they will bring new interest to my bracelets which have got rather stagnant and boring.

I agree, they are stunning - I have already pre-ordered one.  I think they will be a striking addition.

I didn't think I would like dyed stones, but changed my mind completely on seeing them.  Though apparently they are not actually dyed, but coated somehow (details were a bit sketchy) and are guaranteed not to fade or chip Smile

Are the hematites just glass beads or real stones? If they are stones, then which original stone? Do you know?

I think they must be actual haematite or they couldn't call them that. They do have that very shiny look of real haematite, but just in different colours.

They are actual hematites but they have been coloured using a process known as PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) - information provided by Kerry of Babs Bead Warehouse on Facebook.

Ah... that would fit with the information I had. I think then the coating may be titanium dioxide which would explain the colours.

I could not take my eyes off the hematites that I saw, they were so striking and of course I liked the blue one the best. Now I am thinking I would like the other colours too. I did think that some collectors might find them a bit 'shiny' and too bright but it does seem that they will be popular. I am looking forward to seeing some combinations with them.

Today I've managed to see part of the new release IRL cheers
Loved the Hematites and bought the green one. Pics to follow (need to be taken by daylight)
The Hematites may vary slightly in size and color, so I will like to pick them in person.
My LD did not have the Dodo in stock!  Crying or Very sad
The Cherry lock is stunning, solid and not light weighted. Will get it soon.
Path of life and gentle wave are very pretty too and a good size.
Some of the others are rather small and/or light weighted (New Horizon, compass,seven chakras).
Will go back next week to see the other ones  Laughing

Lucky to have seen them Fleur! I am surprised that the hematites vary, the pictures make them look fairly uniform in size and color; I ordered 2 blue but did not pick them. Looking forward to seeing your pics.
