Clevelands Magnetic Bones ( Sub Fossils )

A few examples of sub fossils from local deposits that attract a magnet.

This Equus Skull easily attracted a small round rare earth magnet.

                            As did the bones below found and excavated about 3 miles away in fact the first pic show week kids magnets sticking. 

           The two images below show me scraping the inside of a freshly cut bone  after I had thoroughly cleaned it to remove any residual metal from the saw blade, I used a hard plastic scraper the inner bone material was found to be highly magnetic.


The video below shows an experiment I carried out with an antler piece.
