Red iron oxide or ferric oxide is the principle colouring agent in the natural mineral hematite, which is often associated with varying proportions of other minerals such as clay, chalk and silica.
Natural red oxides, such as hematite, are very opaque, absolutely permanent and have excellent covering power. They are strong absorbers of ultraviolet light.
