If you hang things on your refrigerator and your magnets don't hold more than two sheets of paper, you do not have neodymium magnets. These are the strongest magnets currently available. They are stronger, smaller and more affordable than ever before.

Neodymium super magnets are made with a combination of rare earth elements. They are neodymium (Nd), iron (Fe) and boron (B). The little abbreviations are what you would see on the periodic table. It is this combination that allows for some wonderful things to be done with magnets. They can be used for anything from crafts to industrial projects.
