Conversion Of Magnetite To Hematite In Iron Ore
Magnetite is a see also of iron. As nouns the difference between magnetite and iron is that magnetite is (mineralogy) a magnetic mineral, fe]] 3 [[oxygen o 4, one of the primary ores of iron it has also been called lodestone while iron is (uncountable) a common, inexpensive metal, often black in color, that rusts, is attracted by magnets, and is used in making steel.People might assume that magnetic hematite is simply magnetized hematite. True hematite, though iron containing, actually has a weak magnetic field because of the way its iron atoms are aligned. On the other hand, the mineral magnetite is highly magnetic, and many often erroneously assume it is magnetic hematite (the artificial material).
