This beautiful Coffee Table embeds a whole Periodic Table” for those of you who simply can’t get enough with the table in your head alone.
Close-up pics reveal that the table itself doesn’t define what the element is, rather a sample of each element is buried inside as solid block of acrylic.
(The only question I have is, does the table also come with radioactive elements too?)
By embedding all element samples in clear acrylic, they are beautifully presented and also protected from tarnishing. This format also helps to addresses health and safety issues, as all potentially toxic or corrosive substances are permanently encased in a thick layer of robust resin. Argon gas and mineral oil is further used to ampoule reactive samples and preserve their freshly cut appearance. Individual acrylic blocks are available for sale, although read the shipping section carefully as some elements are costly to send internationally.
