Default Re: Ruby laser rod E8 240.38mm

Im assuming that solid Ga is in multiple pieces due to the fact that you said it is nuggets. Do you know if thats Ga-69 or Ga-71? A word of caution to any buyers looking to buy the Gallium. Gallium will melt in your hands and in liquid form it is considered CORROSIVE to other metals. Btw..you will get in trouble with USPS if they find out you are asking them to ship a HAZMAT required item. But, anyways, how much are you looking for for all 100g? Anything above $225 and and im not interested anymore. Thanks

Is there an angle I'm not seeing? I just did a dumb-man's google search, and found sources of Gallium for $99 for 100grams:
001 - Gallium Metal - GalliumSource

Are you joking? Or does that actually matter?

Are we making semi-conductors here?

Or just hardening spoons that magically melt in water to impress friends? ;p

Well, the point is, it is worth more to some, even it isn't to us. His is approximately 100 times more pure than the other source and it's harder to get that. Especially to element collectors, that has value.
