This is a 1/2 Grain of 99.9% pure Rhodium crystal metal. Rhodium is the most valuable and rare metals in the world. It is obtained as a by-product in the mining of copper and often occurs with deposits of platinum and is commonly also obtained from the mining and refining of platinum. Rhodium is a silver-white metallic element that is highly reflective and resistant to corrosion. The name rhodium comes from the Greek word "Rodon," meaning rose, named for the rose-red color of its salts. Now Liquid Bullion is offering the best of the best in Pure Rhodium Crystals.
This precious metal is extremely rare and can be best described as a silver-white, hard, corrosion-resistant inert transition metal. Rhodium is a member of the platinum group and a noble metal. It was first discovered by William Hyde Wollaston in 1803 and appropriately named due to the rose color of one of its chlorine compounds. Just like the second most expensive precious metal in the world, Palladium, around 80% of the world’s Rhodium is used as one of the catalysts in a three-way catalyst converter in automobiles.
