Lead Metal in 25mm Acrylic Box

from 6.00

Ok, let's be honest. Lead might be just a couple of protons away from gold but it's at the other end of the scale in desirability and its humility is reflected in its traditional uses. Fish sinkers, bullets and bathroom pipes. When setting out to complete a collection of all the elements you can "upgrade" to a higher level of purity than the commercial grade - and prices quickly go up to unrealistic levels when you reach into the 5- and 6N's - but you can also opt for a sample that showcases this metal's interesting textures such as in the case here. Encased in this little cube you will find a piece of 4N-grade lead ((ie., 99.99%) that has been prepared in such a way as to emphasize the structure the metal assumes when rapidly cooled from its molten state. The whole thing is bathed in an inert gel that will keep the sample from oxidizing. The cubes themselves look great on their own or as part of a set in our custom made medium sized Periodic Table of the Elements acrylic cases.
