I would love your lanthanium, manganese and niobium, but I have no idea what a reasonable price would be!

Also, a tungsten filament or two might be nice. PM sent.

I'll take the red P and the iodine..;).

Just kidding.
Really nice collection there. Any pics. I would love to drool.

I don't have any current pictures (yet) of my upgraded periodic table, but I do have a short video taken on a friends iphone! Not sure if it will play on here but have had a go anyway!

Looks like the Quicktime movie won't attach or play on here but i can always email it to people if interested!:)

I might be interested in your Ag crystal and As. Is the Iodine a single crystal? Pictures would be appreciated. I have Samarium, a dendritic piece of probably >200g for sale or trade.

Not the best pictures in the world from my little mobile phone, but will give you an idea hopefully!

I can see a bit of your element display in the iodine picture - looks nice! If you've got a picture of the overall thing I'd like to see it. I'm currently designing a display case of my own for my collection, too.

Update: The La, Mn, Nb, 1 x V pellet and 2 x W filaments have now been sold!

How much for the As mate? And the native Ag?

Wizzard - 7-9-2011 at 09:18

My parcel was recieved, I'm a very happy customer :)

Is Bromine difficult to obtain. I know where a 500ml bottle of it is (Analar grade) and could perhaps obtain some of it if some people want it?

Chemistry Alchemist - 8-9-2011 at 07:30

would you be able to pm me how much the As is and the Tl?


theobromacacao - 11-9-2011 at 05:51

Does anyone here have the expertise and facilities available to ampoule reasonably large quanitities of elements for my collection e.g. 25-50g or so? I have quite a few large samples which would really benefit from this (lanthanides spring to mind), but have no way of doing it myself. I would happily pay for someone's time and expertise and am based in the UK. If anyone can do this, or has any good contacts I could approach, please contact me, as that would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

If anyone else has elemental bromine they can part with U2U me please. Missed the boat.
