Ruthenium 50mm Lucite Cube

125.00

Jewel. That's what comes to mind when you see this beautiful little crystal of pure ruthenium; a very rare member of the precious metal family of noble metals. Perfectly smooth facets are guided by the natural 'desire' of the Ru atoms to interlink in their favorite manner only to be abruptly stopped by an unwelcome atom of something else at which point the remaining ruthenium dutifully continue building a lattice in another direction. And in this manner those facets give way to capricious angles that intertwine in surreal patterns for our delight.

This 50mm cube holds the little gem within an ampule allowing it to move around freely. Weight of crystal is approximately 1 gram.
