In this investigation, we explore a facile synthesis of Fe3BO6 in the form of small crystallites in the specific shape of nanotubes crystallized from a supercooled liquid Fe2O3-B2O3 precursor. This study includes high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) images, magnetic, optical, and impedance properties of the sample. HRTEM images reveal small tubes of Fe3BO6 of 20 nm diameter. A well resolved hysteresis loop appears at 5K in which the magnetization does not saturate even up to as high field as 50 kOe. It means that the Fe3BO6 nanotubes behave as highly antiferromagnetic in nature in which the surface spins do not align along the field so easily. The temperature dependent impedance describes an ionic Fe3BO6 conductor with a reasonably small activation energy E-a similar to 0.33 eV. Impedance formalism in terms of a Cole-Cole plot shows a deviation from an ideal Debye-like behavior. We have also reported that electronic absorption spectra are over a spectral range 200-800 nm of wavelengths in order to find out how a bonded surface layer present on the Fe3BO6 crystallites tunes the 3d -> 3d electronic transitions in Fe3+ ions.
