The discovery of magnets
- Mar 20, 2018 -

Magnets are not invented, they are natural magnetite. The ancient Greeks and Chinese discovered a natural magnetic stone in nature, which is called "magnet". This stone can magically suck up small pieces of iron and always point in the same direction after wobble. Early navigators used the magnets as their earliest compass to identify directions at sea. The earliest discovery and use of magnets should be the Chinese, that is, the use of magnets to make the "compass", one of the four major inventions in China.
