Here you can find some pictures of Magnetic levitation and a picture of my dragonfly 

Here are two pictures of my Magnetic Levitation device, the scale is in mm.

In this close-up, the two shiny slugs above and below the floating magnet are cast bismuth. The floating magnet itself is
a strong Nd Fe B magnet  (neodimium-iron-boron).

In this larger  view , the two large solid cylinders at the top are strong Ne Fe B magnets.

Here is a picture of my ceramic Dragonfly. It's about 32" long, made in 3 sections. With stainless steel wings and legs.
