    Heard this tonight on a Mad Men episode and well, jeez, it’s the sexiest thing I’ve ever heard. 

    It is a great song.

Banded Iron Formations
Most of the world’s iron ore is associated with BIFs. BIFs are somewhat cryptic as they formed on only three separate know occasions in Earth’s history. However it is known they are associated with ocean anoxia. BIFs are distinctive in appearance with grey (or oxidised red) layers of haematite (I’m Australian so I insist on spelling it the hard way) interbedded with layers of bright red chert. Chert is a sedimentary silicate rock formed at the bottom of the ocean and the redness is due to relatively small amounts of iron affecting the colour. BIFs themselves don’t have a high enough proportion of haematite to be economically mined, but in some areas, by some enigmatic weathering process the chert is removed and haematite remains in economic proportions.
The biggest banded iron formations formed when an ocean full of soluble Fe2+ was oxidised to the insoluble Fe3+, which then settled at the bottom of the ocean. What caused this oxidation? Well! It happened as photosynthetic bacteria began to proliferate a few billion years ago! They converted atmospheric CO2 into O2 and oxygenated the atmosphere and oceans leading to the earth we can survive on today. Thanks Cyanobacteria!!
