A symmetrical Fe2O3/BaCO3 hexagonal cone structure having a height of 10 μm and an edge length of ~4 μm is reported, obtained using a common solvothermal process and a mirror growth process. Focused ion beam and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy techniques revealed that α-Fe2O3 was the single crystal feature present. Ba ions contributed to the formation of symmetrical structures exhibited in the final composites. Subsequently, porous magnetic symmetric hexagonal cone structures were used to study the observed intense electromagnetic wave interference. Electromagnetic absorption performance studies at 2–18 GHz indicated stronger attenuation electromagnetic wave ability as compared to other shapes such as spindles, spheres, cubes, and rods. The maximum absorption frequency bandwidth was at 7.2 GHz with a coating thickness d = 1.5 mm. Special structures and the absence of BaCO3 likely played a vital role in the excellent electromagnetic absorption properties described in this research.
