Authigenic or detrital origin of pyrrhotite in sediments?: Resolving a paleomagnetic conundrum

Horng, Chorng-Shern; Roberts, Andrew


Monoclinic pyrrhotite (Fe7S8) is widely claimed to carry magnetizations acquired during early diagenesis in anoxic sedimentary environments. In contrast, geochemical literature indicates that pyrrhotite formation is extremely slow below 180 °C, which mak
