If a piece of quartz, marble, glass, lithium ore, salt,, or really any earthly element was in the form of a 6mm marble then tied to a string and placed inside of an elec mag field.

What would it mean or what would be the significance if the 6mm sphere of element was able to spin 360 degrees 50 times per second?

What forces would cause that and why?

Are you suggesting the EM field somehow causes the spin?
Or are you asking how a spinning sphere would influence the EM field?
Is the sphere polarised electrically or magnetically or neither?

I'm not suggesting anything, I'm just curious if that could happen why would it if it even could happen.

ben there would be no significance to any of that.

A known reaction of Aluminum within the confines of a magnetic field would create eddy currents much like a generator. They use aluminum bars underneath rollercoasters as braking systems. As the bar passes between magnets it generates electricity. HOWEVER, the electricity is traveling within the plate itself, forming a short circuit. As you probably know, shorting the windings of a generator will practically stall it. Hence, the eddy currents within the plate form a counter electro motive force, thus acting like a braking system.

Using non-conductive materials will form no eddy currents. Wherever you heard or formed the idea that a 6mm sphere inside a magnetic field would spin at 50Hz is simply untrue. If you're looking for "Free Energy" there is no such thing. Energy can only be converted from one form to another. The most common form of energy is heat. Whether you change rotational energy such as a generator into electro motive force (spinning a motor) in a perfect world with no losses you could at best use a generator to power its own motor and nothing else. But due to impurities in the materials, some of the generated energy is converted into heat. Friction of the bearings also converts energy into heat. So you will never find a self perpetualizing machine. A marble of any size made of a conductive material within the confines of a magnetic field will - if anything - seek to conserve energy by coming to a complete stop, not vice versa. The notion of "6mm" being something significant - it wouldn't matter what size the sphere is.
