    Jun 15, 2020 Magnetite is found in igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks. As its name implies, it is magnetic it and other inherently magnetic iron-containing minerals are described as being ferrimagnetic. Magnetite is in the hexoctahedral crystal class in the 3-D crystal structure, the purple atoms are iron, and the red atoms are oxygen.
