Oltmann 7 discuss alteration from magnetite to maghemite to hematite This may be an important reaction pathway in terms of Martian alteration products A possible pathway in forming maghemite is by the oxidation of magnetite The presence of water is required for this reaction 7 The alteration of maghemite to hematite can also occur through...

Difference Between Magnetite and Hematite DefinitionKnow More

Jan 31 2018 0183 32 Hematite has unpaired electrons that cause its magnetic properti It is paramagnetic because it has only ferric ion Fe 3 The electron configuration of Fe 3 is 1s 2 2s 2 2p 6 3s 2 3p 6 3d 5 where 5 unpaired electrons are present Therefore hematite can be separated from a mixture using high-intensity magnetic separation methods which use magnetic fields with intensity ranging from...
