Hematite is found in all types of rocks, including the rhodochrosites. It is iron oxide, and is used as pigment in paints and as a polishing agent.

There are several types of Hematite found, and therefore hard to say that it is found in only one type rock. In its powder form, it is blood red and it get is name from the Greek word meaning "blood like".
