The paper reports on experimental modeling of the colloid system composition in natural groundwater. It is shown that the stability of iron hydroxide nanoparticles relates to the presence of silica and humic substances. It was found out the molar ratio of iron/silicon/organic substance is equal to 1/7/2, where stable iron (III) hydroxide nanoparticles form. The iron hydroxide nanoparticle size ranging from 30 to 600 nm was determined. It characterizes the steady state of the colloidal system.
