Badar besi stones come in many different forms and sizes. The natural stone has a black color, though rarer varieties also feature a reddish tone. This indicates the high level of iron ore in the mystical stone, thereby giving the badar besi a distinctive red color. Red-colored iron ore also occurs in minerals such as hematite and magnetite. Due to the rare combination of minerals, badar besi is considered an extremely powerful magical iron element. Thus, badar besi mustika stones are grouped among the high-end types of amulets and talismans in Indonesia.
