I like to collect chemical elements, especially exotic/weird ones.
I bought a sample of Tungsten from AliExpress, the dealer said it was 99.95% pure.
- It's a small rod, measuring roughly 4.5-5cm in length and weighing 76g. (pretty heavy for its size).
- The rod does not stick to magnets but moves if a magnet is passed quickly over it.
But is Wolfram supposed to leave a metallic iron-like smell on your skin when touched?
I'll also leave a photo of the sample.
