Magnetite
Sorry, your browser doesn't support Java Magnetite
What intrigues most people is that Magnetite is a rock which is naturally magnetic. Early sailors soon discovered this property and called one permanently magnetic variety 'Lodestone.'


Magnetite is easily detected because of its blackness, its hardness of around about 6.0, its magnetism and its black streak on white porcelain tiles. It crystallizes as cubes but is usually found as double pyramids.
It is relatively heavy and quite cute in its diced form. If there is a large deposit of magnetite nearby, all the local readings on compasses will be wrong.
