I am very happy with my cubic centimeter of the densest element in the universe, Osmium. The sample weighed in at 22.6 grams, as advertised. By contrast, Magnesium weighs only 1.7 grams for the same sized cube, and Lead weighs 11.3 grams. The Osmium cube came elegantly displayed in a metal container with a glass top window. I appreciate the difficulty involved in working this metal into a precise cube of one centimeter because of it’s hardness and toxicity when fine particles are created if milled and polished. The package arrived in a timely manner, considering it was shipped from the PRC, but was held up for two days by US Customs, Homeland Security for some reason. They saw fit to open the package for examination, but did not break the seal on the smaller black box containing the Osmium. Customs gave it all their seal of approval, and UPS made it easy to track it on it’s journey. The kind folks at Krinite and Polar Metals also included a beautiful free sample of Bismuth metal crystal in a nice display.
I love this
