Yes, but Me thinks they are linear and not the square of the displacement.
If you could have such a spring you might use a magnet to
increase the period of a vertical device to just about anything at all.

Subject: Springs and Gravity or Magnitism

Is it possible to build or buy a spring which increases or decreases at the square of the distance instead of being linear ? Hi 
Goeoff, They are usually called leaf springs.Does this ring any bells?Regards,Chris
