Are all metals magnetic?

    Typically when speaking of magnetism in metals, “ferromagnetism” is implied.  That is, what metals stick to magnets.  Ferrous metals include iron, nickle, and cobalt, among a few others.  Non-ferrous (non-ferromagnetic) metals, such as gold, copper, aluminum, and lead react to magnetic fields, but it is on a much smaller scale and there is no permanent effect — they cannot be “magnetized”.
