The iron in blood is naturally repelled by a solid magnet the opposite of iron outside of blood by a magnetic field and I wander... Are there any elements that are repelled by a solid magnet? enter image description here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVsWTkD2M6Q

    $\begingroup$ Blood is repelled by a magnetic field? Are you sure? Try it... $\endgroup$ – winwaed Jul 17 '18 at 2:12

    $\begingroup$ As far as I know, all magnetism is still believed to be dipole... in other words nothing is one way or the other. Substances that are affected my magnetism will be attracted to one pole and repelled from the other, or will reorient to the attractive pole. I'm not aware of anything entirely repulsive. $\endgroup$ – JeopardyTempest Jul 17 '18 at 2:16

    $\begingroup$ @JeopardyTempest that is not even the case for simple ferromagnetism. Both poles of a magnet stick to your fridge for example. But I think this question is better suited for the physics SE $\endgroup$ – Christoph Jul 17 '18 at 3:29

I think you should check this resource: http://www.physics.ucla.edu/marty/diamag/

Graphite and bismuth are strongly diamagnetic materials. Because of their electron configuration they establish a field in the contrast direction of the external magnetic field, such as applied by magnets. As a result, they are repelled by magnetism, and even they can levitate if you put a magnet in both sides of such materials.

Magnetism is related to the electron configuration of the elements, and in overall, materials. Mostly physics, but also chemistry can give you more in-depth knowledge about this phenomenon.
