Potassium metal 98.5% lump

from 16.00

The health conscious will know that potassium is good for the heart and you can get plenty by eating bananas. Not too many people know, or care, that potassium is a silvery metal. A good reason for this is that it only stays a metal in the vacuum of space or when surrounded by a noble gas. The slightest trace of oxygen - or most any other element for that matter - quickly reacts with it to form compounds.

Even under mineral oil, which is very inert, a piece of potassium will manage to tarnish from trace impurities. At least it's a beautiful purplish blue shade!
