Osmium Metal in 25mm Acrylic Box

from 10.00

Osmium vies with equally exotic rhenium for rarest stable metal found in nature and with iridium for the title of heaviest. At only 1 part per billion in earth's crust and 75% heavier than lead osmium is something special indeed. While the world mines put out some 3,000 tons of gold every year all the osmium would add up to less than the weight of a skinny model. To top it off osmium is a beautiful shade of light blue! Considering all these factors we suspect the day is not long in coming when someone very rich decides to make jewelry from it. Here's your chance to own a little of this wonderful metal encased in a little cube filled with gel. As you turn the cube the little osmium pieces slowly tumble and turn into new positions - fun!
