A ferrofluid is a curious thing. It is made up of nano-sized iron fragments suspended in some type of liquid carrier such as oil. In the presence of a strong magnetic field, the ferrofluid becomes magnetised.

The outcome is beautiful and bizarre! As the magnetic field interacts with the ferromagnetic particles, they form different patterns of spikes or corrugations.
