What are examples of materials that closely correspond to the Heisenberg model?

I use the antiferromagnetic Heisenberg model all the time: $ H = J \sum \limits_{\langle i,j \rangle} \vec S_i \cdot \vec S_j$ What are some examples of materials that are well-described by this ...

How does magnetic anisotropy cause stable long range magnetic ordering in quasi-one-dimensional solids?

According to Mermin-Wagner theorem ferro/antiferromagnetic ordering cannot occur in ideal one dimensional systems. However there exists quasi-one-dimensional ferromagnetic materials attributing its ...
