We have carried out magnetization measurements of a single decagonal Al72Ni12Co16 quasi-crystal for the cases of the magnetic field parallel and perpendicular to the periodic axis with a torsion-type magnetic balance in various magnetic fields up to 10 kOe from 4.2 K to room temperature. Anisotropic diamagnetic susceptibility was observed, which is closely correlated to the electron motions in the quasi-crystal.
