We just added this product to the catalog and we are currently fulfilling a Kickstarter project for it. We will begin shipping orders on our website after the Kickstarter orders have been fulfilled in May. This is a Pre-Order only but it is still a good idea to reserve yours now to save your spot in line.

The Heritage Periodic Table: Collector's Edition is the next version of our acrylic periodic tables. This is the most complete and most stunning periodic table collection on the market today. There are several new improvements that make this new edition superior to the original periodic tables. Below is a list of improvements found in the Collector's Edition:
- Pure alkali metals in micro glass ampules
- All gaseous elements in glass ampules
- Native gold nuggets
- Native gray diamonds for the carbon sample
- Native copper crystals
- Native sulfur crystals
- Ferrous meteorite for the iron sample
- Halogens in glass ampules (Chlorine, Bromine, Iodine)
- Pure mercury metal in glass ampules
- Pure europium metal in glass ampules
- Antique radium watch hands embedded for the radium sample
- Slightly larger size, so overall larger element samples
This is the highest quality and most complete element collection on the market. And we feel like the best looking, but we might be bias. We recently filed for a patent as well. This is the perfect gift for the science enthusiast or chemistry lover in you life. Get yours today!
The Heritage Periodic Table pretty much speaks for itself. The collection looks great on a desk, in your hands, and anywhere else it can be displayed.
The Specs and Details
Dimensions: 5.125" x 7.25" x 1.0" (130mm x 184mm x 25mm)
Material: Lucite Acrylic (Made in the USA)
Element Embedments: 85 elements
Non-pure Elements: Fluorine (represented by natural fluorite), Radon (represented by granite), Uranium (represented by Autunite ore), Thorium (represented by thoriated metal)
Lucite acrylic is a cut above the rest. Unlike cheaper plastics, Lucite acrylic will not turn yellow over the years. This is the most durable and scratch resistant acrylic available. Lucite is also the most optically clear acrylic. It is made in the United States and will last for generations.
The collection contains 85 individual element samples. Due to its rarity and radioactivity, Technetium was excluded from the collection as was Promethium. Except for Uranium and Thorium, elements 84 (Polonium) through 118 (Oganesson) were also excluded (for obvious reasons).
Although several elements within the Periodic Table are dangerous, the collection is safe to handle and store.
In order to produce the correct sizes for the Periodic Table, the elements are broken, cut, machined, melted, or sealed in a glass ampule.
The Collector's Edition Display contains ampules of the gaseous elements (Xenon, Krypton, Argon, Neon, Helium, Oxygen, Nitrogen, and Hydrogen).
We get asked about the radioactivity and overall safety of the periodic table from time to time. These are legitimate concerns and we wanted to address those concerns here. Although several elements in the periodic table are dangerous or toxic, the acrylic and glass ampules make the collection safe to handle and store.
The radiation from the uranium and thorium samples is extremely low. Autunite (uranium ore sample) has a radioactivity level of 0.01 mRem for a 2mm piece held in your hand for an hour. The average American is exposed to 0.034 mrem/hr from background radiation (300 mrem/year). In other words, a person will get three times the radiation from natural background radiation which includes the sun, food, radon, and the environment, than they will from holding the periodic table all day.
