The strongest type of permanent magnets made, rare earth magnets produce significantly stronger magnetic fields than other types of magnets, including ferrite or alnico magnets. The compounds used in the formation of rare earth magnets come from the rare earth or Lathanoid series of elements in the periodic table.

Types of Rare Earth Magnets
There are two types of rare earth magnets: neodymium magnets and  samarium cobalt magnets.

Rare Earth Magnet Attributes
Extremely strong for their size, rare earth magnets are metallic in appearance and found in simple shapes such as rings, blocks and discs.

Rare Earth Magnet Applications
A wide variety of applications rely on the tremendous strength, even in small sizes, of rare earth magnets.
