Magnetite is a type of oxide mineral that is primarily composed of iron oxide, with the chemical formula Fe3O4. It has a metallic black colour and often forms as octahedral or dodecahedral crystals, as well as in other forms such as massive or granular aggregates.

It is a common mineral that is found in many types of rocks, and is commonly found in igneous and metamorphic rocks such as basalt and gneiss, as well as in hydrothermal veins and as a weathering product of other iron-rich minerals.

Magnetite is commonly used as a source of iron, and is an important ore mineral in the production of iron and steel.
