Magnetite Fe3O4, is one of the main iron ores. As an accessory phase it is abundant in almost all igneous and metamorphic rocks.
HerkunftMagnetite found in the Jacupiranga Carbonatite Complex in Brazil
- Principal component is Fe 72.4 %m/m.
- Transition metals (Sc, Ti, Va, Cr, Mn, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn) range from 0.2-850 µg/g.
The chemical composition of minerals, the Earth's building blocks, is of interest for both industry and science.
