Rubidium 50mm Lucite Cube

Rubidium is a pricey and very difficult element to get. The rarity of the element coupled with its instability means few laboratories will take the trouble to isolate this metal hardly anyone has any need for and which poses storage and transportation problems. Add to this the fact that purifying rubidium to pure metal from raw ores is a process that takes over 30 different steps only goes to make this element that much less popular with chemists.

That's a pity because none of those reasons deter the collector on the hunt to fill out his periodic table. Purified rubidium is a gorgeous dazzling white that melts at just above body temperature.... giving perhaps one potential use as a low tech fever alarm!

Your one gram sample of rubidium comes in a very attractive, labeled acrylic cube measuring 50mm per side.
