If we break a magnet into two parts each parts become a magnet with a north pole at one end and a south pole at the other end. If we break it further, we observe the same behaviour. This will continue even if we break the magnet to its molecular level.
Each molecule of a magnetic substance is an independent magnet irrespective of whether the substance is magnetized or not. These tiny magnets are called molecular magnets.
