Magnetic properties of certain rocks and metals were observed in 600-500 BC and were first documented in ancient Greece. Magnetic elements were also described and utilized for certain purposes in India and China. Magnets were commonly used as experimental subjects and have found widespread application in compasses and similar navigational instruments. With the discovery of electromagnetism, magnets were frequently used in multiple tools. Nowadays, magnet-based instruments are generally employed in a multitude of spheres, from construction and mining to food & beverage production.
