The Romans believed that by rubbing crushed Hematite on their bodies, they become invincible and protected by Mars, the God of War. Oddly the spectral signature of Hematite was also seen on Mars during 2001 Mars Spacecraft Odyssey around Mars. When broken, the inside part of a Hematite stone contains a red profile that is used for ancient drawing and coloring.
