About the history of ferrite?

A Brief History of Ferrites | SpringerLink

In 1930, the Tokyo Institute of Technology scientists discovered that oxides containing iron and divalent cations had distinctive magnetic properties. Tokyo Tech is the largest institution for higher education in Japan dedicated to science and technology and t is generally considered to be one of the most prestigious universities in Japan.

Ferrite Magnets Safety:

Magnets are amazingly useful and fun for science projects, DIY, and hobby but they aren’t without their dangers.
