Iridium metal 99.95%


    Iridium is very nearly the ideal stuff to make dream jewelry out of. On top of it being the rarest it is also the least corruptible of all metals, the densest, one of the most expensive and extremely hard to boot. With a list of ‘mosts’ like that why don’t we see A-listers flaunting their Ir bling? Well, because there’s one more quality added to that list of mosts: it’s fiendishly difficult to work with. It has a sky high melting point of over 2400 °C (jewelers have always whined about platinum’s melting point of 1750 °C, ha!) and iridium has the bad habit of shattering rather than gently allowing itself to be beaten into shape.
