## Main Question or Discussion Point

The commercial toy, Levitron, can achieve stable magnetic levitation due to gyroscopic stabilization and axis precesion. The Levitron toy sold in market has a vertical spinning axis, and so far I have not found a variation with horizontal axis.

Is it allowed in Earnshaw's theorem, for a magnetic system to have stable levitation, just by rotation alone, in a horizontal spinning axis?

Thanks in advanced.
