And Haemation. An epithet for garum, made of the intestines of fish macerated in salt. Haematites, (from its supposed virtue of stopping blood). It is called also blood-stone, azedegrin, asedenigi. When in flattish cakes, with knobs on the surface, the ancients called it hematites; when in long striated pieces, schistus; but they do not differ. The terra sinopica is also called blood stone. Fer oxide hematite of Hauy iv. 105.

Twenty-four parts of haematites yield nine of iron; but it often affords half its weight, and is found in Germany, France, Spain, and England. It is very hard, of a dark red colour; but of a brighter hue when powdered. As it is very difficultly powdered, the crocis martis, or the rubigo ferri, may be substituted. See Lewis's Materia Medica.
