No, standard hematite, a form of iron oxide, is not attracted to a magnet. See the related link to the right for more information on hematite from a layperson's point of view.

=No not all metals are attracted to a magnet for example tin isn't attracted to a magnet. Hopes this helps a bit.=

It is not material Per se but one thing that is found in all objects attracted by magnet are atoms.

NO! Look, but a magnet by a coke can. Get it now?

No only Iron, Nickel and Cobalt are magnetic

yes. i don't know why exactly that's what I'm trying to figure out, but the steel bar is attracted to all parts of the magnet

It means that death is getting attracted like a magnet torwards all people.

Magnets same poles repel and opposites attract. The magnet will act on a lot of metals. They are attracted to it. It all has to do with the magnetic domains aligning.

galena, pyrite, and hematite all happen to be distinct in their metallic luster.

if it truly is a magnet, than no. however, you can demagnetize a magnet by dropping it or hitting it really hard to rearrange the domains within the magnet. Domains are the regions within a magnet that have particles that are either arranged so that the poles are attracted to each other or randomly arranged so that the particles are not magnetized at all. so if it is a magnet... it probably will be magnetic unless you take your anger out on it or something.

Hematite is the mineral form of iron oxide. In its crystallized form, hematite of all colors forms a rhombohedral lattice. A single crystal is in the form of rhombohedron.

If you mean "are they attracted to a magnet?", the answer depends on whether you're referring to US or Canadian nickels:US nickels are actually 75% copper so they don't contain enough nickel to be attracted to a magnetCanadian nickels have been made of a lot of different alloys:From 1922 to 1942 and from 1946 to 1981 they were made of either nickel or steel, which are attracted to a magnet.Some 1942 and all 1943 nickels were made of a copper/zinc alloy and aren't attracted.From 1982 to 1999, they were made of the same alloy as US nickelsSince 2000, most but not all Canadian nickels have been made of steel.

Most metals are not attracted by magnets. The only common ones strongly attracted to a magnet are cobalt, nickel and iron (steel is mostly iron). Examples of non-magnetic metals are iron and copper.

Pretty much all. The only magnetic materials are the metals are Cobalt, nickel, and iron. There may be a few obscure ones but none to my knowledge.

From 1982 to 1999 all Canadian nickels were made out of the same 75% copper / 25% nickel alloy used in US nickels. That alloy doesn't contain enough nickel to be attracted to a magnet.

Please try the rest of the pennies in your pocket change.NO American cent will stick to a magnet except the steel ones minted in 1943. All the rest are either bronze (up to mid-1982) or zinc (mid-1982 to the present) and neither of those materials are attracted to a magnet.

Every single one except iron, nickel and cobalt. Most alloys - but not all of them - of these metals are also magnetic, such as steel. ( just an extra fact for you there (: )

Mosquitoes are attracted to carbon dioxide, which all animal life (including humans) exhale in their breath. So when you breathe out, you are emitting a mosquito magnet!

All metals that are magnetic are called ferrous metals, and will contain some iron. Non ferrous metals are non-magnetic, but are typically far more resistant to corrosion

a magnet is made up of lots of tiny things called domains.these domain are what make moagnet a magnet. they alway face north, that's what makes it a permanant magnet.though you can get temporary magnets by swiping the magnet onto a magnetic material many time making sure that only swiping in one direction and not keeping the magnet close to the metal when going back to the other side. this haappens because those domains are magnetic, and by swiping a magnet on it, the all get attracted to the north pole. but hte can be stopped from being a temporay magnet when droped heavily. amina =3

Jewelers will use a couple of techniques to find if an item is real gold. The most reliable is a scratch test, they rub the item on a special block that reveals if it is genuine. The easiest way to tell is to put a strong magnet over it. Real gold is not magnetic at all. If there are fillers present it will stick to the magnet, or you will feel it pull towards the magnet.

When a magnet or iron piece is watched under a powerful microscope we will obseve that a magnet or iron is made up tiny tiny pieces which cannot be further divided realistically such small pieces are known as domains. In a magnet all domains are in the same direction due to which it attracts iron. While in a iron these domains are arranged randomly which nullify its magnetism. When a magnet is brousht near an iron matrial all the domains get attracted to the magnet due to which domains in iron get arranged in a particular direction due to wich at that time they act as magnets but as soon as the magnet gets farther the domains again arrange them selves randomly due to which tey do not remain permanent magnets

Hematite, also spelled as hæmatite, is the mineral form of Iron(III) oxide (Fe2O3), one of several iron oxides. Hematite crystallizes in the rhombohedral system, and it has the same crystal structure as ilmenite and as corundum. Hematite and ilmenite form a complete solid solution at temperatures above 950°C. Hematite is a mineral, colored black to steel or silver-gray, brown to reddish brown, or red. It is mined as the main ore of iron. Varieties include kidney ore, martite (pseudomorphs after magnetite), iron rose and specularite (specular hematite). While the forms of hematite vary, they all have a rust-red streak. Hematite is harder than pure iron, but much more brittle. Maghemite is a hematite- and magnetite-related oxide mineral.

Some are, but not modern US coins. To be magnetic (attracted by magnets), coins must be mostly nickel or steel.All of the fractional (cent) coins of Canada are currently made with steel, and will be attracted to a magnet. The 1 pence, 2 pence, 5 pence, and 10 pence coins of the UK are also coated steel and are attracted by magnets, to the extent that designs can be made with them on magnetic surfaces.

Sometimes they are, but sometimes boys are more attracted, sometimes girls are more attracted. It all depends to be honest
