|Hunky lump. |
Finally, a lump of actual pure neodymium. The stuff is everywhere in magnets, and it's not terribly expensive in that form, but it's not commonly found in pure form outside of chemical catalogs. I store this lump under mineral oil to protect it from oxidation.
I chose this sample to represent its element in my Photographic Periodic Table Poster. The sample photograph includes text exactly as it appears in the poster, which you are encouraged to buy a copy of.
