Hello Everyone,

Does anyone know the probabilty of finding a nice black magnetite layer
under an outer coating of rust on an iron meteorite? In other words, if I
take a wire brush and solvent to a rusty (but solid) iron, can it be cleaned
down to a dark magnetite layer, or will it result in finding shiney silver
metal. Thanks.
