- Torpedo Magnets
No ordinary magnets. Toss em up in the air together and these powerful hematite magnets will rattle and hum! Youll be captivated by their curious buzzing mid-air dance that is caused by the continual attraction and repulsion forces between them, and their olive-like shape. Use them as a stress relieving play toy or a finger fidget thing - they are so enthralling you'll forget your worries, your work and everything else in between. Also great to use in the classroom in a magnet unit, ask: why do they make a noise?

What you get
A pair of polished hematite Torpedo-magnets in a blister pack. Each magnet is approx. 6cm long.
How does it work
When these magnets connect together they vibrate making an unusual sound, almost like they're singing magnets. Their poles align through their narrow shapes. To make them sing hold them in the palm of one hand, then, using your thumb, separate them to about a half inch apart. After a little bit of practice, when you toss them upward they will produce a wild sound. You might find it easier to hold one in each hand before tossing them up close together. Try, putting the narrow ends of the magnets together on a table or desk, let go and see what happens. Or try spinning them across the desk. Warning however, this can be really loud! The magnetic tricks you can do with these are limited only by your imagination! Fun and educational.
