S-ratio variations for known mixing percentages of hematite (upper axis) and magnetite (lower axis). Values are compared for two versions of the S-ratio expressed in Eqs. (1) and (2) with a 300-mT cut-off field. The large magnetic property difference between magnetite and hematite means that the S-ratio is highly non-linear with respect to hematite content
