Iron-Oxide Concretions and Nodules | Some Meteorite ...

2 天前 · Hematite and magnetite are two common iron-oxide minerals. Most iron ore deposits consist mainly of hematite, magnetite, or both. Iron-oxide concretions, iron-oxide nodules, and ironstones are often mistaken for meteorites because they are heavy (dense) and their unusual (frequently bizarre!) shapes catch people’s attention.
