The first magnets were not invented, but rather were found from a naturally occurring mineral called magnetite. Traditionally, the ancient Greeks were the discoverers of magnetite. There is a story about a shepherd named Magnes whose shoe nails stuck to a rock containing magnetite.
The magnetic properties of obsidian have been recognized by geologists for some time and the causes subject to investigation (e.g., Schlinger et al., 1986). Basic glasses are reported to be more magnetic than acid glasses (George, 1924:370).
Magnetite is a mineral whose primary component is an iron oxide that contains equal amounts of iron(II) and iron(III). … As its name implies, it is magnetic; it and other inherently magnetic iron-containing minerals are described as being ferrimagnetic.
Both are Feldspar gems that are weakly magnetic due to traces of iron. … Natural Emerald contains iron (Fe3+) impurities in addition to chromium and vanadium. Most synthetic Emerald is doped only with chromium and/or vanadium, but some may also contain iron.
No. Copper or copper and zinc (pennies since 1972) are not magnetic metal. However, steel pennies made during World War II could be magnetized and are attracted to magnets.
Metals that attract to magnets
Metals that naturally attract to magnets are known as ferromagnetic metals; these magnets will firmly stick to these metals. For example, iron, cobalt, steel, nickel, manganese, gadolinium, and lodestone are all ferromagnetic metals.
Solder is not magnetic, and storing a soldering iron near a battery is meaningless, as batteries aren’t magnetic either. You can run into magnetism issues with soldering guns, which are quite different from soldering irons.
