Study of the effect of mechanical deformation on magnetic minerals indicates the structure-sensitive character of a parameter such as coercive force. Magnetoelastic effects and stress-induced rearrangement of the magnetic domain pattern lead to changes in magnetic remanence. This paper reports the results of the application of hydrostatic pressure up to 8 kilobars on single crystals of magnetite. Coercive force and saturation remanent magnetization are studied.
