A nicely sized square of high grade diamagnetic carbon graphite. This stuff works almost as well as pure bismuth. It makes for great science projects, or just fun. You will need to make your own
levitation apparatus -- though we have made one using cassette tape cases, playing cards and inexpensive ceramic magnets.
Please see our DIAMAGNETIC LEVITATION PAGES for further details on how to perform this experiment and the equipment you'll need to provide.
The levitating magnet shown was photographed in our simple but effective diamagnetic levitation stand.
