Abstract
Thermal demagnetization has been carried out on 20 mutually oriented chips to unravel the stable paleomagnetic record of LL6 St. Severin. Whereas the higher unblocking fractions (520-560 degrees C) of natural remanent magnetization (NRM) are directionally scattered, the lower unblocking fractions (<520 degrees C) are relatively well constrained along a great circle in a stereographic projection. Microscopic analysis revealed St. Severin to contain paramagnetic troilite and a ferromagnetic Fe-Ni system. A sharp unblocking around 560 degrees C during thermal demagnetization strongly indicates that tetrataenite is the sole NRM carrier in St. Severin. The absence of kamacite contribution on NRM and the presence of a scattered higher unblocking fraction (520-560 degrees C) of NRM imply a sequence of brecciation and a shock-induced metamorphism rather than a thermal origin of NRM.
