An unadvertised observer usually gains information on the magnetic properties of a material by testing its interaction with a known magnet, e.g. attraction strength for a ferromagnet or levitation height for a superconductor. These observations involve the field induced by one of the materials on the other, and are very difficult to exploit as the fields depend sensitively on the shape of the materials.
