The Grand Tour of the Periodic Table
THE Museum Display Collection - the Ultimate in Periodic Tables!
The last 3 in production, after which there will be no more - sorry. They are very labor intensive.
It is ideal for use in chemistry, biology, earth science,
physics, mineralogy, astronomy and or teaching/exhibits.
The set presents 60 specimens of minerals (all keyed to a chart for easy identification) that contain specific elements from the Periodic Table.
Many of the samples are rare, some are crystals, and all are beautiful examples of the exemplary treasures of the Earth.
The set includes an 8-part, 350-page color Teacher's Guide, student hand-out sheets,
event questions and answers, and an 11 inch X 14 inch laminated fold-out guide to the Periodic
Table keyed to minerals and elements.
All specimens are numbered and match an identification chart.
Also great for use in educational outreach programs.

The price of this set is going to continue to increase as mine closings - and the many rare minerals in this set are increasingly difficult to obtain.

The periodic table as you have never seen or thought of before!
ONE LEFT. There will be no more.
One of a kind - forever!
Further Information: Of the 118 elements on the periodic table 36 are synthetic, rare radioactive and/or often artificially created and are completely "unavailable." When we subtract these there are 82 remaining and we subtracted the gases (#10, 18, 36, 54), leaving 78 possible elements. Of those we subtracted rubidium, thorium and uranium, which can be purchased separately through us as individual products for a total of $85. So - of the 60 specimens in this set 75 elements ARE represented, some of which are redundant because multiple elements can be found in the platinum group and the rare earth specimens. The remaining you predominantly need a special laboratory for anyway because they are synthetic and only exist for a few moments.
This set is the very closest you will get to the entire periodic table representatives. There are other sets that say they represent the gases as well but unfortunately when the vials are tested some have leaked out.
