From diamagnetic.
(American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition)


  • A marble statue, on the contrary, has its feet a south pole, and its head a north pole, and there is no doubt that the same remark applies to its living archetype; each man walking over the earth's surface is a true diamagnet, with its poles the reverse of those of a mass of magnetic matter of the same shape and position.

    Fragments of science, V. 1-2
