Magnetic properties of bulk wurtzite n-type GaMnN and highly resistive GaMnN:Mg monocrystals were studied for the magnetic field applied parallel and perpendicular to the crystal hexagonal c-axis. Magnetization of both types of samples reveals paramagnetic behavior. However, for n-type GaMnN isotropic magnetization was observed which is in agreement with Mn d 5 configuration. On the other hand, GaMnN co-doped with Mg shows large magnetic anisotropy which suggests Mn to be in nonspherical d 4 or d 3 configuration.
