DIY Diamagnetic Levitation

DIY diamagnetic levitation with an old hard drive magnet and carbon graphite elevator motor brushes used as diamagnetic plates.

Crudely and quickly made for nearly free.

You can also levitate a magnet with silver, bismuth, or pyrolytic graphite for best results. The graphite, silver, and bismuth act as a diamagnetic and repel a magnet regardless of the polarity.

The large (dangerously powerful) hard drive magnets are used to counteract the force of gravity so a magnet can levitate freely between the diamagnet graphite.
