Lodestones are composed of magnetite, a mineral form of iron oxide. Like other types of magnetite, they are hard, black and shiny, but lodestones are special because they are naturally magnetised, thanks to the effects of lightning. Lodestone was well known to the ancients because it attracted iron.
