I stumbled across this web page today while doing a search for magnetic properties of crystal.
According to this document, and after skimming through it saw the final statement which is below.
Could an iron ball 1,500 miles across be a single crystal? Unheard of until this work, the idea has prompted realization that the temperature-pressure
extremes of the inner core offer ideal conditions for crystal growth. Several high-pressure laboratories have experiments planned to test these
results. A strongly oriented inner core could also explain anomalies of Earth's magnetic field, such as tilted field lines near the equator. "To do
these esoteric quantum calculations," says Stixrude, "solutions which you can get only with a supercomputer, and get results you can compare
directly with messy observations of nature and help explain them -- this has been very exciting."
I remember going on a tour of a cave here in Texas and while in the gift shop I was looking at the geodes and thinking to myself how big could a geode
Then I remembered watching the growing earth videos a few years back and everything started clicking.
Sure enough Neal Adams talks about geodes in his website. www.nealadams.com...
In his article he talks about iron geodes and how they may form in space. He also talks about how meteorites when cut open have crystalline cores.
What I got from all this is the earth and possibly other planets started off as crystal structures using gases like sodium and chlorine amongst the
many others that are present in space at the molecular level and slowly grew larger over billions of years. As gravity increased they of course
attracted other similar structures . At the heart of it though these crystal structures continued to grow increasing the outer shells diameter to what
we have today.
Further more the crystal have an influence in the magnetic field lines and possibly be the actual source of the earths magnetic field if the prominent
crystal structure at the core is actually something like Magnetite. Magnetite is a natural crystal after all and if a dominant growth is indeed
Magnetite then that could explain why some planets have magnetic fields and others don't. It may just be luck of the draw as to which crystal
structure is more dominant in the initial growth process. We do know that in all volcanic eruptions there are Magnetite deposits being ejected.
I just thought all of this is really interesting.
