A model hamiltonian with only on-site interactions is introduced and solved for a hypothetical ... LiHLiH... array with variable lattice spacing R. The paramagnetic (large R) system becomes diamagnetic, with a finite magnetic gap, as the bandwidth is increased. The sharp transition is marked by a symmetry change of the exact ground state | ψ〉.
