Ytterbium 50mm Lucite Cube

75.00

The town of Ytterby near Stockholm, Sweden, yielded the chemistry world ores rich in mysterious new elements. Named after its namesake town, ytterbium is one of the rare earth metals misnamed for not actually being all that rare but infamous for the tremendous difficulty needed to separate it from its neighbors in this group. Although ytterbium is not terribly reactive in air all the same it keeps its shine best when stored in an inert gas. Our 1-2g sample of 99.99%+ purity comes in an argon ampule embedded in a 2x2 (50x50mm) block of crystal clear Lucite acrylic.
