We might have gone a little overboard with this sphere, but we have to admit it was a fun experiment. It's a 7 cm sphere of solid 95% tungsten, weighing in at 3 kilograms. Here's what it looks like next to our kilo cube:
It's the ultimate centerpiece of your collection. Serious collectors only! This piece is extremely heavy and dense. Keep it in a safe place away from children and pets and be aware of its potential energy.
Tungsten has the highest melting point of any element. In fact, you can't easily build a container to melt it. You have to resort to expensive powder compression methods to form it. Tungsten is an extremely rare element (only 100 parts per billion in the earth's crust).
Trance Metals Raised over $500,000 on Kickstarter to bring these spheres to life. Get yours now!
