What are Buckyballs & Buckycubes made of?
Buckyballs and Buckycubes are small, powerful magnets, with various coatings, including Nickel. The magnets are made primarily from Neodymium, a so-called "Rare Earth," with a small amount of iron and boron.


What are these magnets used for?
Aside from their use in Buckyballs and Buckycubes products, Neodymium magnets are used in a broad variety of applications. Some are electronic, like the hard drives on computers, or in generators; others are when anything needs to be stuck to metal in a way that can be removed - think of spice cans on your refrigerator door, notes on a metal bulletin board, cabinet latches, tool and knife holders, also as metal detectors, for collecting metal shavings for removal from a car's oil pan, even removing dents from brass musical instruments (like trombones).


Aren't these magnets very strong?
Yes, they are the strongest permanent magnets in use. There are much stronger electromagnets, which require electricity to generate a magnetic field, can be turned on and off, and therefore are not permanent.


If they are so strong, aren't they dangerous?
Not if used correctly and according to instructions. The most important instruction is to keep them away from all children. Some of the larger magnets (much larger than the ones we use in Buckyballs and Buckycubes) can be dangerous to adults as well if not handled correctly.


If these magnets are dangerous for children, why do you sell Buckyballs and Buckycubes as toys?
We don't sell them as toys for children. We sell them as products for adults and go to considerable lengths to make sure they are kept away from all children. In fact it is virtually impossible to open the packaging of one of our products without seeing the warnings.
