Limonite Iron Ore Mineral - 2 Pieces
by American Educational Products

\n

Varying in composition and originally defined as a single mineral, Limonite is now considered to be an amalgamation of hydrated iron oxide minerals. Mined alongside hematite as a means of producing iron since 2500 BCE, it varies in color in different shades of brown and yellow. Because of that coloring, it is sometimes referred to as brown hematite, brown iron ore, yellow iron ore, and lemon rock.

\n

Each rock or mineral specimen measures approximately 1-2 inches in length along its longest side.
