Be the coolest kid in the sandbox with a piece of Magnetite.
To the average person, Magnetite (also known as Lodestone) looks like a heavy brown and black rock. But to those who know how to unlock its secrets, Magnetite can do amazing things. Because of its magnetic qualities, Magnetite can be drug through sand and magically pull out all the small pieces of iron and steel that stick to it.
Bring this natural magnet to school and you will be the genius on the block (at least for a day or two, anyway).
