• Taenite - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taenite Taenite (Fe,Ni) is a mineral found naturally on Earth mostly in iron meteorites.It is an alloy of iron and nickel, with nickel proportions of 20% up to 65%.. The name is derived from the Greek ταινία for "band, ribbon". Taenite is a major constituent of iron meteorites.In octahedrites it is found in bands interleaving with kamacite forming Widmanstätten patterns, whereas in ataxites it ...

    www.britannica.com/science/taenite Taenite, nickel-iron mineral having a face-centred cubic structure and playing a major role in the crystallization and structure of iron meteorites and stony iron meteorites. It is sometimes referred to as γ iron, after one of the three temperature-dependent forms (allotropes) of pure iron, because

    ben10.fandom.com/wiki/Taydenite Taydenite is the most precious material in the Milky Way Galaxy. It is also the hardest material known, and used as currency commonly throughout the galaxy in the form of rectangular coins called "Taydens". Taydenite first appeared in the episode Kevin's Big Score. Vulkanus decides to get back at Kevin for a previous betrayal by forcing Kevin to recursively absorb a small piece of Taydenite ...

  • Kamacite - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kamacite Taenite is the nickel rich end member of the kamacite–taenite solid solution. Taenite is naturally occurring on Earth whereas kamacite is only found on Earth when it comes from space. Kamacite forms taenite as it forms and expels nickel to the surrounding area, this area forms taenite.

  • Ataxite | meteorite | Britannica

    www.britannica.com/science/ataxite Ataxite, any iron meteorite containing more than 16 percent nickel. Ataxites, containing taenite as their main mineral, do not show the Widmanstätten pattern. The taenite in ataxites is mixed with some kamacite to form an intergrowth called plessite. Ataxites are a rare class; of the 49 iron
  • Taenite - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

    www.sciencedirect.com/topics/earth-and-planetary-sciences/taenite Since most parent taenite crystals had dimensions larger than typical meteorites, a continuous pattern of four different sets of kamacite plates may be observed on etched surfaces of typical iron meteorites. The limiting factor for the growth of kamacite is the slow diffusion of nickel through taenite.
