  Magnetite - LoveToKnow 1911
Magnetite is a mineral of wide distribution, occurring as grains in many massive and volcanic rocks, like granite, diorite and dolerite.
Grains of magnetite occur in serpentine, as an alteration-product of the olivine.
In emery, magnetite in a granular form is largely associated with the corundum; and in certain kinds of mica magnetite occurs as thin dendritic enclosures.

The Curie temperature of magnetite is about 580°C. Magnetite is the most magnetic of all the naturally occurring minerals on Earth, and these magnetic properties led to lodestone being used as an early form of magnetic compass.
Magnetite typically carries the dominant magnetic signature in rocks, and so it has been a critical tool in paleomagnetism, a science important in discovering and understanding plate tectonics.
Magnetite can be prepared in the laboratory as a ferrofluid in the Massart method by mixing iron(II) chloride and iron(III) chloride in the presence of sodium hydroxide.

Magnetite is composed of iron atoms in two different states, one atom with a
Since magnetite is strongly ferrimagnetic, ordinarily strong production magnets are sufficient to separate magnetite from a finely ground mixture of taconite ore, which includes magnetite and its host rock.
During this process, the magnetite is further oxidized to hematite and transforms from a strongly magnetic to a very weakly magnetic material.

 PSRD: ALH 84001 magnetite
The magnetite grains reside in tiny grains of iron-magnesium-calcium carbonates, which are typically 50-200 micrometers across and are dispersed throughout the ALH 84001 meteorite as disk-shaped or spheroidal grains, or, in the case of carbonates that enclose silicate fragments, as irregularly shaped grains.
Studies of thin slices of the rock show that the magnetites are found at the rims of carbonate grains in optically opaque regions and throughout the interior of the carbonate grains.
Magnetites in the optically-opaque rim are crowded together and appear to be more irregular in shape, consistent with growth in a highly strained carbonate crystal.
