Diamagnetic Levitation Products
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!

Levitating Zen Monk
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.
The Gravity Rod is a beautiful piece of fine-art that provides shelter for (and free-floating suspension of) an exquisite little rare-earth magnet. In this oasis the magnet will hover magically, touching nothing but air for a millennium.
Solar Eclipse Sculpture
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.
Adjustable Lucite Levitator
This vintage diamagnetic levitator with two adjustable functions is a perfectly preserved example of an early handmade prototype.
Diamagnetic Box Levitator
In a wooden box, a pyrolytic graphite chip floats friction-free above an alternately-arranged set of strong magnets.
"Flatland Plane" Levitator
Float a large number of decorated pyrolytic graphite "characters" over a hand-crafted wood-enclosed rare earth magnet matrix.
