    I think it's true but not really sure. Tried some google searches and nothing came up.

    In exploration geophysics, sedimentary rocks are generally ignored as sources of anomalies. In other words, magnetic susceptibility is not particularly variable amongst sedimentary rocks, generally speaking.

    Whether it's more or less variable than density..?

    I looked at your graphs, so I think it means it's less variable than density?
