The electromagnetic response of metamaterials is governed by the collective behavior of engineered electric and magnetic dipoles. Therefore metamaterials may be replaced by hypothetical composites of spherical particles embedded in a host material. The effective electric permittivity and magnetic permeability of such systems can be computed with high-frequency extension of the Maxwell-Garnett mixing rule. The validity of this assumption is discussed and the features of the model are presented by calculating the effective electromagnetic material parameters of a deep subwavelength spherical composite in three different ways: with the Maxwell-Garnett mixing rule, high-frequency mixing rule and directly extracted from transmission reflection data. Afterwards the developed theory is applied to find the parameters of a composite with similar magnetic response as a metamaterial built of split ring resonators or fishnet structures.
