Micaceous iron oxide

Micaceous iron oxide (iron oxide, Fe2O3) is a naturally occurring iron oxide with lamellar shape similar to mica (hence the name). Micaceous iron oxide is characterised by:

 

  • Black colour
  • Lamellar structure
  • High inertness in various media (the iron in the mineral has already been oxidised).
