We consider a dusty plasma where dust particles have a magnetic dipole moment. A Hall-MHD type of model, generalized to account for the intrinsic magnetization, is derived. The model is shown to be energy conserving, and the energy density and flux are derived. The general dispersion relation is then derived, and we show that kinetic dust-Alfvén waves exhibit instability for a low dust and ion temperature and high dust density. We discuss the implication of our results.
