Vanadium 50mm Lucite Cube

55.00

With vanadium we find an example of an unsung industrial hero. The obscure metal is an integral ingredient in many different alloys where it provides resistance to corrosion, strength and malleability but the pure metal is too costly to feature much of a need in commerce.

Organic molecules that involve vanadium are colorful as well as toxic and a few species make use of such a combination to warn predators in analogous fashion to poison dart frogs and such (though in this case utilizing different chemistry). 

A splash of iridescence born from these colorful vanadium oxides adorns this pure strip of vanadium metal in a beautiful palette of peacock hues. Your vanadium sample sits suspended at the center of a 5cm block of virtually indestructible Lucite acrylic.
