Scandium was discovered in 1879 by L.F. Nilson and takes its name from the Latin word "Scandia", meaning "Scandinavia". Scandium is a soft, silvery white metal. It has been identified in several minerals, including cerite, orthite, thertveitite, wolframite and euxenite (a niobate, tantalate and titanate of several rare elements in which scandium was originally discovered). It is a metal which tarnishes in air (shows a pink coloration), burns easily and reacts with water to produce hydrogen gas. Applications for scandium have not yet been fully investigated and its use is limited primarily to research.

Scandium -  precision density-standard cube 1cm3 NEW!

Using finest materials, each density cube was lapped to 10x10x10mm by a mechanical engineering company with an accuracy of 0.01 millimeter. Each one separately ground and polished it represents the theoretical density of the respective element by its weight. The weight is not affected by the laser inscription. Information such as element symbol, name and density is durable burned at the surface. Each element even shows its specific characteristis in colour and reaction with the laser. Altogether 25 elements are planned in a complete set in a wooden case.
