Hematine is a hematite simulant sometimes called hemalyke, hemalike, or magnetic hematite. It was originally reported to be pressed and sintered iron oxide, but most material currently on the market is a ceramic-like material composed of barium-strontium ferrite. Hematine is highly magnetic, whereas hematite is not.
