[quote:Anonymous Coward 4896045:MV8yMDY4MDIwXzM0Nzk2ODc2XzIwREE3NDRB] [quote:Anonymous Coward 28535456:MV8yMDY4MDIwXzM0Nzk2NzMwX0E2ODk1MzQ2] I've been doing this since I was a little kid. stuff always sticks to the magnet and, we always assumed that it was iron. what makes you say that the magnetic material isn't iron, OP? [/quote] I also remember doing this as a kid. Would spend part of my day trying to fill a plastic bag. I'd have to move the magnet through the dirt and after about a minute, I'd have a bit stuck to my magnet. If I take a magnet a touch it to the soil around here, every little bit of dirt sticks. If I take a broom and sweep some dirt on the street into a pile, 100% of that dirt is also magnetic. [/quote]
I know this sounds a bit off the wall, but please give me a few minutes of your time and help with this simple science experiment. Grab a magnet and lightly touch some dry soil outside. In California, 100% of the soil I've tested is magnetic.
This is not iron
and it's not normal for dirt to stick to a magnet (I'm not speaking from ignorance). Please test your dirt and post your findings here. If you could, include a general location.
