Terbium Metal Cube 99.5%

from 51.00

A slightly lower grade and a notch or two below the usual fit and finish we normally carry but we found an awesome bargain with a supplier who had some Tb they needed off their books. That savings is reflected in the price. Sometimes we lose track of the fact that money doesn't grow on trees and most collectors find it hard to shell out fifty bucks for a piece of metal that can fit on your pinky.

And yet...

Terbium is one of the rarer "rare earth" metals; a minor component of major ores monazite and euxenite which are actively mined, especially in China, in search of just these exotic elements. Despite its poor familiarity with the public there is a strong demand for terbium in the making of LCD panels as one of its salts lights up green. Turn your screen to a full image of a jungle and the light reaching your eye has been filtered through countless atoms of this metal.

The combination of rarity and a healthy demand keep raw metal prices high and were it not for our luck scoring a supplier's overstock you could expect these 10mm cubes to cost two or three times as much. So stock up on the cheap while you can!
