The Monolith is a beautiful magnetic levitation sculpture designed and made in the US.
Made from Bismuth the Monolith allows a 5mm magnet to freely levitate in the sculpture. This is possible due to the unqiue properties of Bismuth. It is not magnetic but diamagnetic meaning it repels both north and south poles of magnets equally and along with a magnet placed at the top of the sculpture it gives enough stability to enable magnetic levitation.
This sculpture is cut from a solid Bismuth ingot and really shows off the way the crystals form and the range of colours produced. The piece hasn’t been coloured or altered in anyway from it’s natural state. Due to the fact these are cast individually the structures may vary in colour slightly.
A truly fascinating piece that will look great in both the home and office and is sure to amaze friends and colleagues.
The Monolith measures roughly 230mm including the base which is 101mm square.
Included in this package is the Monolith sculpture, base, a crown magnet and 10 small magnets of different sizes and shapes for floating.
* 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.
