Colorful Ferrofluid in a Bottle!

Ferrofluid is a fantastic substance. It’s a liquid infused with nano-sized particles that come to life in the presence of a magnet. It’s the type of science that appears simply magical. And up until now, ferrofluid was only available in jet black. That’s why we’re so excited to introduce Colorful Ferrofluid in a Bottle.

Yes, this spike-filled sphere is actually a liquid!

So how can a liquid be magnetic? And why does ferrofluid spike? It’s science, baby! Ferrofluid is a solution containing both solid and liquid particles of hematite, magnetite, and an iron-containing compound. This imbues ferrofluid with the magnetic properties of a solid in the form of a liquid. Crazy!

The spiking behavior pictured below provides an amazing 3D visualization of magnetic flux lines. Adjust the distance of your magnet to the fluid to modify the number and intensity of the spikes.

Pure fun in a bottle!

Once you start playing with Colorful Ferrofluid in a Bottle, it’s hard to put it down. There’s a seemingly endless array of ways to interact with it. You can spike it, toss it, drop it, fling it, bridge it, and with the addition of spare magnets, you can create absolutely fascinating designs. Check out the image collage below for inspiration.

Usage note: Leaving the magnet against the ferrofluid for extended periods of time can cause irreversible damage to your ferrofluid (such as it no longer being able to spike). When not in use, keep the included magnet attached to the cap of the bottle or in a separate location.

Choose from two colors

Colorful Ferrofluid in a Bottle is available in two vibrant hues: gold and blue. Each 100mL bottle contains a colorful ferrofluid in a clear solution. This proprietary suspension solution is comprised of 14 different substances that prevent the ferrofluid from staining the glass walls.
