Armani Barbie wears an elegant re-creation of an original Giorgio Armani gown. Her strapless, silk chiffon top coordinates with a skirt of crêpe and sparkle tulle. Intricate beadwork lends sophisticated glamour to the long skirt. She carries an evening purse of taupe crêpe embellished with crystals. The perfect final accessories are hematite earrings and necklace.
Hematite, also spelled as haematite, is the mineral form of iron(III) oxide (Fe2O3), one of several iron oxides. It is the oldest known Fe oxide mineral and is widespread in rocks and soils.
Hematite’s popularity in jewelry was at its highest in Europe during the Victorian era. Gilding processes use certain types of hematite or iron oxide-rich clay, especially Armenian bole. Hematine is a synthetic material sold as magnetic hematite.
