Gadolinium Metal Cube 99.5%

from 24.00

From a bigger piece of gadolinium a lovingly machined little cube is completed after a lot of work (and swearing). But it's worth it! Gadolinium is another one of the exotics known to chemistry majors as the lanthanide row and due to expense, difficulty in extraction and overall rarity it's remained little more than a lab curiosity. Our Chinese bulk suppliers have about as much affinity to this or any other rare earth metal as they do the the steel drums they put them in. Perhaps if they saw them in these shiny perfectly straight-walled little cubes they'd regard them with a little more interest though, to be honest, the demographic slice that appreciates this sort of thing is, well... modest.

Ok, so these are to be sure not precision density cubes churned out by a machine but manually milled and polished one at a time. Expect loose tolerances so definitely don't rely on this as a reference tool. However, the upshot is a more visually appealing cube with gorgeous, reflective surfaces that just beg for you to pick them up and twirl them in your hands!

 

Weight of each 10mm cube is 8g.
