Subject: Gadolinium

Post:

Tappers,

I'm researching the purchase of Gadolinium in either lump, rod or wire
form. It has a very low Curie point (see PIRA 5G50.40), even lower than
Nickel (PIRA 5G50.15) .

I checked Goodfellow and they want $500 for 100 gm of 99.9% purity which is
more than I want to spend. I'm hoping to get it for much less cost.

Does someone on tap-l know where I can get Gadolinium for a good price?

Your help would be appreciated.

October has finished as the wettest month ever recorded, 15.38 inches of
rain.
Yikes.
Something is out of equilibrium.
Must be political.

Do a little more of that work which you have confessed to be good,
Which you feel that society and your most Just Judge rightly demand of you.
Cultivate the tree which you have found to bear fruit in your soil.
If you have any experiments you would like to try, try them.
Now's your chance.

Henry David Thoreau, Journal entry, 1850.
