Images[edit]

Please can someone give an idea of size, such as a scale bar. This is very basic stuff. Not including these is bad practice and makes the images of very little value. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.153.64.39 (talkcontribs)

I have answered here. Best regards Rhanyeia 12:36, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
Indeed, it is good practise to include a scale bar or object for which the size is relatively well known. But you have to work with what you get on wikipedia. This is also not the only image without, not by a long shot.Rolinator 02:40, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

Clay mineral[edit]

Is Ilmenite really a clay mineral? I found some refs claiming that it is found in clays, but as clay mineral should it be a layered silicate? --Stone (talk) 13:09, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

No. What refs? Perhaps it occurs as residual grains in clays formed by weathering or alteration of primary ilmenite bearing rock. Vsmith (talk) 14:45, 20 April 2011 (UTC)
Right. The ref says residual grains. Should we remove the clay mineral box at the end of the article ? --Stone (talk) 06:06, 21 April 2011 (UTC)

Chemical name[edit]

Isn't this Iron (II) Titanate? 76.124.224.179 (talk) 00:05, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

Redirect from Ferrocarbon[edit]

I ended up on this page by looking for "ferrocarbon". As that is a redirect to Ilmenite, the term "ferrocarbon" should be explained/mentioned in the text, shouldn't it? 130.180.55.242 (talk) 12:00, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for raising this point. I have changed the Ferrocarbon article's redirect from Ilmenite to Steel, because I think ferrocarbon is steel with at least 10% carbon, so it seems more sensible to me. I've also added a sentence to the ilmenite article in a new section named "Alloys". GeoWriter (talk) 14:27, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
