Magnetic concentrates of the sediment are rich in iron sulphide grains and iron nickel sulphide grains. Microprobe observations show that most of the grains are of the order of 1 m in size and attached to iron bearing clay flakes.
The structure and chemical composition of iron spheres with golden Ni Fe core were analysed with the use of a scanning electron microscope. Plate I 3 is a secondary electron image of an iron oblate spheroid with golden Ni Fe core (under stereoscope). The core in a naturally broken spherule is shown.
Hematite (iron ore) weighs 5.15 gram per cubic centimeter or 5 150 kilogram per cubic meter, i.e. it's density is equal to 5 150 kg/m179;. In Imperial or US customary measurement system, the Hematite (iron
C) Sea floor spreading. Explanation The Earth's magnetic field is believed to be produced by fluid changes in the liquid, outer part of the Earth's core, which is mainly formed of iron. The reversal method is not completely intermittent as it is on the sun, whose fascinating field changes every 11 years.

basaltic lava cools, the magnetic orientation of iron within the magnetite aligns with the actual sea floor, and identify the pattern. Student Inquiry Worksheet 3 Procedure Seafloor Spreading and Plate Tectonics 10 PS 2979 3.
Magnetic reversals have helped to support the theory of Pangaea. the age of the Earth. sea floor spreading. the theory of Gondwana.
Some of the minerals that crystallize line up according to the Earth's magnetic field that surrounds them, in the same way that iron filings line up in a particular pattern around a bar magnet. The Earth's magnetic field doesn't point in the same compass direction all the time.
A magnetic field is the three dimensional area around a magnet in which the magnet exerts force on other objects. The invisible magnetic field of a simple bar magnet can be visualized by placing iron filings around it (SF Fig. 7.5). The magnet exerts force on the iron filings causing them to move and align with the magnets magnetic field lines.
