Diamagnetic Levitation Products

Diamagnetic Graphite Poke Cropped and Resized

Diamagnetism is a property of certain elements - such as graphite or bismuth - which in combination with strong permanent magnets, can result in free-floating stable levitation without electronic feedback (like our from-below levitators) or spin-stabilization (like our permanent magnet levitating tops). The "clean-air" gap is small, but the levitation is everlasting and truly magical.  Amazingly, the discovery that all physical matter is somewhat diamagnetic led scientists to the revelation that they can levitate anything with a strong enough magnetic field - including even living creatures!  (See the video on our science page HERE)

Levitating Zen Monk

diamagnetic monk gif

Cast in pure bismuth, the little meditating monk achieves cosmic balance thanks to a rare-earth Neodymium magnet and the amazing diamagnetic properties of bismuth. The tiny magnet hovers between the monk's praying hands touching nothing.  Undisturbed, it will float there for the rest of your life.

Gravity Rod

Solar Eclipse Sculpture

Solar Eclispe Scultpure 1

A magnetic fine-art piece that levitates a small Neo magnet. The effect is reminiscent of a solar eclipse when a light source is behind the opening.
