I don't know where else to post this, so here goes.

I just want to know if anyone had seen an orange gunk/froth/suds/etc coming out from washing magnetite sand? based on the color i think it is iron oxide but I'm not so sure, anybody had an experience with it? thanks

Haven't seen it myself, but that sounds right - iron oxide.
I haven't tried washing it, but it does get some atmospheric moisture and I've
seen some color changes - splotches of orange in it. :)

thanks. I was just trying to confirm, since I did not know that magnetite could rust :D
