I can’t think of anyone who isn’t fascinated by magnets. They exist in a realm outside our comprehension; an invisible yet tangible force, showing up only in the effect they have on the surrounding world. However, there is a way to visualize the forms and the waves that magnets create, and that is through ferrofluid.

Ferrofluid is a liquid suspension of ferromagnetic particles. It reacts and conforms to magnetic waves, while also exhibiting properties of a fluid. Ferrofluid has been used extensively in hardware, and in art. But until now, there has been few consumer options available. That’s where Ferrite comes in.
