Germanium is named after Germany and francium after France but indium is not named after India. The name was instead inspired from spectroscopy where its discoverer analyzed a sample containing this metal gave off an indigo glow, a beautiful color halfway between blue and purple.

Indium has many uses in electronics and its demand worries project managers who note that the element has no ore deposits anywhere in the world. Instead, the mining of copper, lead and zinc have small amounts of indium mixed in as impurities and it’s here that the world gets it from. Problem is, however, that the growing demand is not being met with more mine openings. Eventually, indium may trade for a much higher price than it does today as a result of that market demand-supply imbalance.

Here we have a meaty piece of this exotic metal embedded in a block of Lucite measuring two inches on a side. Purity is 99.995%.
