When a string vibrates it doesn't vibrate at only one frequency, it vibrates strongenst at a fundamental frequency and then its also vibrating at a bunch of harmonic frequencies that are multiples of the fundamental. Harmonics work by cutting off all the tones its vibrating bellow a certain harmonic so you only hear one high pitched one.

well natural ones are made by placing your finger VERY VERY lightly over lets say the 12th fret thing like the end of the 11th. wait. there is a Steal This Video! dedicated to harmonics. go watch it

when you play natural harmonics, at the twelth fret, you're causing the string to vibrate in two different parts. at the seventh fret three different parts(i think) and im not sure about the fifth fret.

four parts. Go measure. Its exactly half way from the nut to the 12fret (which is exactly halfway from the nut to the bridge.)
