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.

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.

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.

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?

Ampouling


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!
