MAGNETITE:


Name: Magnetite is a natural magnet, hence the name.
Chemical Formula: Fe3O4, Iron Oxide.
Notable Occurrences: South Africa, Germany, Russia and many USA localities.
Uses: Major ore of iron and as mineral specimens.
Source: Gold panning activities. (See below for details)

The magnetite offered for sale comes from my prospecting (gold panning) trips in the Portland, OR area.
My main areas of prospecting are the Mollala River south of Mollala, OR; the Lewis River north of Vancouver, WA; Coon Creek near Vernonia, OR; and even the lowly Johnson Creek near Milwaukie, OR.
I have tried not to leave any gold particles remain with the magnetite. A magnet does not have any visible effect on gold.

Fluorescent rocks

Fluorescent rocks and other materials.
Some rocks will glow with a different color when placed under an ultraviolet light.
This can be a very interesting display with just a little work.

Have fun searching you home for other items that fluoresce under the ultraviolet light.
Amaze others with other items you can find in the average home.
Research the uses for this unusual scientific oddity.
