All Materials Exhibit Magnetism?

  1. Mar 29, 2010 #1
    Is it correct to say that all materials exhibit some form of magnetism?

    I was reading on Wikipedia that there are different kinds of magnetism (Ferromagnetic, ferrimagnetic, Paramagnetic, Diamagnetic) and that all materials exhibit at least one of them.
