A a material or object that produces a magnetic field. This magnetic field is invisible but is responsible for the most notable property of a magnet: a force that pulls on other ferromagnetic materials, such as iron, and attracts or repels other magnets (Wikipedia 2019). Magnets can include the elements iron, nickel and cobalt and their alloys, some alloys of rare-earth metals, and some naturally occurring minerals such as lodestones. Ferrous magnets of varying strength can be useful in storage and support applications. Detailed information on Magnetic Mounts is available on the AIC Wiki .
