This article seems to contain parts cribbed verbatim from somewhere else that don't make sense in their context here. I just removed a reference to a nonexistent "figure 4" (still in the version linked above). There's also what looks like an unmarked heading at the start of section "Uses": "7.1. Use to date and infer formation conditions of meteorites". Unfortunately I haven't been able to identify their source - all text searches on Google hit Wikipedia or its mirrors.

OED has this to say about the etymology of "kamacite":
Etymology: < German kamacit (Reichenbach, 1861), < Greek κάμαξ, καμακ- , vine-pole: see -itesuffix1.
So the given meaning is incorrect, the romanization is wrong (should be kamaks-), the Greek itself is missing, and it's missing the trailing hyphen that clarifies that it's a root, not a whole word. I'll correct the article to take account of this. Hairy Dude (talk) 12:19, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
