“Normal magnetite is attracted to a magnet, but some specimens are automagnetized and have the ability to attract small pieces of iron, small pieces of magnetite, and other magnetic objects. This form of magnetite, known as “lodestone,” was man’s first encounter with the property of magnetism. Lodestone is easily identified because it is usually covered with small particles of magnetite and other magnetic minerals.
Pieces of lodestone suspended on a string served as the first magnetic compasses and were used in China as early as 300 BC. When freely suspended on a string, a small piece of lodestone will align itself with Earth’s magnetic field.”

Magnetite is primarily used to balance opposing energies, grounding through the Earth Star Chakra, or to attract.  This can mean to attract a person, or a desired outcome or intention. It balances the emotions and the intellect, and is essential for healers, as it pulls the various subtle bodies into alignment.
