Where are you located, TheChemINC, and where did you get the large bottle originally?

That depends on a lot of things. Mailing it would be illegal, almost certainly. But shipping via FedUp might be possible, but you should be aware that to ship hazmat material correctly requires a Federal DOT license, in most cases. However, there are loopholes for everything, and one is that small samples (I think under 35 grams) of many materials are allowed under the "small samples" rule. I have received it from Aldrich, et al, so it is quite possible to ship it with the correct packaging, but not trivial. I am actually amazed at some of the things that I have been able to order that were shipped via normal FedUp.

But I would guess that most shipping companies would run screaming if you asked them about doing do via their company, if you are not a big company with lots of insurance. The DOT requires $5Million insurance for certain hazmat, like explosives, for example. That is why I don't ship Hg thermometers, it is nearly impossible to do LEGALLY. That does not mean that some people don't do it, just that most are not aware of the laws or ignore them. I personally would not want to try to ship anything hazardous via a shipping carrier, as they are a pain to work with. It is hard enough to just ship glassware.

... Do you mean FedEx?
Yeah, I'm a little reserved about shipping an alkali metal (United Nuclear did, after all, charge a $25 shipping fee for the stuff).
Under 35g is going to be easy, it's probably going to be more on the level of 1-10g in an ampoule.
