This impressive sculpture shows off magnetic levitation with no power source required.
Designed and made in the US these use the little known Bismuth which happens to be the most diamagnetic element. That means it repels both north and south poles. With a magnet at the top of the structure which provides the lift you are able to place a small magnet in either gap and watch as it floats, given stability by the diamagnetic property of the Bismuth (only one magnet can be placed in the sculpture at a time, either in the top or bottom hole).
A fascinating and intriguing object that is ideal for the home or office and is sure to amaze friends and colleagues.
Along with main sculpture you will also receive six magnets for floating; 2 x 3mm cubes, 2 x 4mm cubes and 2 x 4mm spheres.
This model measures roughly 127mm tall and 19mm square.
* Please note these use Neodymium magnets which can affect pacemakers. They are also very dangerous if swallowed so must be kept away from small children.
