Note: No examples of pure manganosite phase was found in any inclusions in steek samples examined altrough the phase has been reported to exist in inclusions. Most of the FexMn1-xO inclusions, which were observed during investigartion, were situated in vicinity of cracks. They were therefore probably formed as a result of oxidation of the steel surface during the heat treatment of the steel.
