Magnetic sea wall at Staithes
I visited Staithes today on a day out with the kids and was surprised to find out from a local lad that the sea defence was made up of Larvikite from Norway. I was impelled to test its magnetic properties and found it to have equal attraction as the Stainton basaltic andesite, i believe the ingredient that links these two different rocks along with others is either Titan augite or Titonomagnatite.
