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.
