>>This is excellent info to know. Has anyone tested any Iceland ash?
Future claims of micrometeorites discovered in one's gutter
may well be magnetic ash.<<
I'm just guessing, but if Mt. St. Helens ash attracts to a rare earth
magnet, I suppose all volcanic ash will do the same. It didn't jump to it like
a nail would, but it had just amount attraction as a stony chondrite. It
might be expecting a little too much from Granny's pot holder magnet to do
the same though..
