About itabiriteHide

A laminated, metamorphosed oxide-facies iron formation in which (1) the original chert or jasper bands have been recrystallized into megascopically distinguishable grains of quartz and (2) the iron is present as thin layers of hematite, magnetite, or martite (Dorr & Barbosa, 1963). The term was originally applied in Itabira, Brazil, to a high-grade, massive specular-hematite ore (66% iron) associated with a schistose rock composed of granular quartz and scaly hematite. The term is now widely used outside Brazil.
