This entry in our product lineup might cause a few raised eyebrows. Gallium melts at 85 degrees Fahrenheit (what's that in Celsius?). This means holding it in your hand will melt it as surely as an ice cube. Making the cubes is not the challenge - they're just poured into molds and allowed to harden - but getting it to you without melting might be. 

Just as piping hot coffee can be held comfortably in hand separated by a thin layer of styrofoam, we're betting betting it can shield our little temp-shy cube from the rigors of the U.S. postal system! Now, obviously, it'll require a little oversight on your part to maintain it in solid form at your end. If the room you're in is hot enough to make you sweat it's hot enough to make the gallium cube sweat too. It's a good idea to keep it away from sunlight as even in a cool area reflective surfaces can induce hot micro-climates much higher than ambient temps.

Also, an important disclaimer - these are not machine made cubes. One of its six walls, the open portion from the mold, will be a little crooked and of a different texture than the other five walls. However, the cubes are sized to fit perfectly in our elements display case and are overall impressive with their attractive bluish tone. In fact, they become visibly bluer after spending a few minutes in a freezer... no other metal shows as dramatic a change in its color across such a small temperature variation!

The 10mm weighs 5.8±0.1g and the 22mm 62-65g
