The wide variety of genetic models for Proterozoic iron formations indicates a lack of agreement about constraints on models. Constraints are reviewed in this paper to help focus the evidence for modeling. Useful constraints are found in modern processes of iron concentration and in variation among iron formations through earth history, as well as in characteristics of Proterozoic iron formations.
