Lawrencium 50mm Lucite Cube

40.00

This wildly radioactive element was another product that came out of the Berkely lab's cyclotron in the late fifties and early sixties. It is named after Ernest Lawrence, a much beloved scientist who built and operated the first particle accelerators which earned him the Noel prize in Physics in 1940. He died in 1958 - the same year the first reports of Element 103 were reported. 

The most stable of this elements has a half-life of all of 11 hours so nobody knows what Lawrencium looks like but we can do the next best thing by encapsulating the portrait of the man who made its discovery possible. This Lucite cube measures 50mm per side and fits in the last slot of our large display case.
