Abstract

This study investigates relationships between microstructures revealed by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and the magnetic properties of strongly magnetized magnetite iron ore previously described as type I lodestone. The sample consists mostly of magnetite with some maghemite (~30%) and minor hematite and goethite oxidation products (<5%). -from Authors
