This collection is the most unique Periodic Table Collection of the Elements ever! It was originally developed as a periodic table collection, in 1998, and has since undergone 6 revisions - to the date of September, 2020. So the current element names on the periodic table are up to date and so is the information. This collection is the very closest you will get to the entire periodic table representative elements, and is presented in a colorful way. It makes learning about the elements, chemistry and geology easier, more interesting and informative.
This periodic table collection of the elements contains 60 specimens, all keyed to a chart for easy identification. Each specimen contains the specific element highlighted, from the Periodic Table. Many of the specimens are rare, others extremely rare, some are crystals, and all are important examples of treasures from our Earth!
This scientific collection includes a 100 page+ Teacher's Guide, student hand-out sheets, event questions and answers, and an 11 inch X 17 inch folded and laminated guide to the Periodic Table keyed to the elements. All specimens are numbered and matched to the identification chart.
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 representable elements. Of those left, there is rubidium, thorium and uranium, which are present in the specimens provided. So - of the 60 specimens in this collection, a total of 78 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 need a special laboratory to produce anyway, because they are synthetic and their half-life is too short to exist for very long.
WARNING: Not all - but a few minerals contain the naturally occurring toxic elements: arsenic, cadmium, chromium, cobalt, fluorine, lead, mercury, nickel, beryl, bromine, bismuth, thallium, vanadium, antimony, trace low levels of uranium and cesium (small mineral specimens), which can expose you to known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm in the state of California if not handled with scientific knowledge. For more information go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov and https://oehha.ca.gov/proposition-65/proposition-65-list.
The toxic minerals are easily identifiable and contained in a mineral perky with a snap top cover container, for safety. They are marked “toxic” on top of the box lid.
