We have this magnetite black sand in 5 lb, 20 lb, and 50 lb weights, which is made up of magnetite and hematite. We do not know the exact composition but we do know that it can be either, or both with other natural materials. Both magnetite black sand and hematite are oxides of iron. These are rather complex inorganic compounds that can occur in various forms. There can be valuable metals in black sands that are magnetic – for example, some of the platinum group metals can exhibit mild magnetic qualities.
This stuff is just plain fun, and use it for therapy, kids science project, model trains, landscape architecture, and scale models, many different uses!
Use black sands as an agricultural soil additive, a potted plant enhancing material and a ground cover.
This stuff is great for “sand baths.” Sand baths were formerly used for treating gout, rheumatism, Bright’s Disease, metal intoxication and so forth. The sand can be heated or cooled for therapeutic effect. The material cools and warms slowly. Can easily be heated in microwave or cooled in freezer.
Use it for running ones hands or feet through, feels amazing. Perfect for relieving stress.
The magnetite black sand is then screened to minus 20, (anything that falls thru a 20 mesh screen, =20 holes per sq. inch) and is then again pulled with a magnet to further refine the material to 98% magnetics.
It packs very densely. For example twenty lbs of it will fit into a gallon milk jug with a little room left over.
