Lithium Element Cube

Shipping calculated at checkout.

Lithium's atomic number is 3 and its symbol is Li. Lithium is the lightest metal as well as the lightest solid element. It is so light that the density is comparable to that of pine wood. It is a bright silvery-white color that tarnishes almost instantly if exposed to air. Being an alkali metal, lithium is highly reactive. Upon contact with water, this metal will readily produce hydrogen gas. Lithium is often stored in oil to prevent it from reacting with the oxygen and moisture in the air. In medicine, lithium is used to treat bipolar disorder. Lithium also has many other uses such as its role in lithium grease, lithium-ion batteries, and as an additive in the production of steel and aluminum.

What Sets Us Apart

Unlike many of the knock-offs found online, our element cubes contain the actual elements, which is perhaps the most important feature of the display!

Superior optical clarity, careful placement of the elements in the artwork, and real, pure elements are what set us apart. This is the highest quality and most complete element collection on the market.

We manufacture our element cubes here in the US using Lucite acrylic which does not yellow over time and is the most optically clear acrylic. This is the perfect gift for the science or chemistry lover in your life. Get yours today!

The whole idea of element cubes is so clever.
Collecting these will bring chemistry alive for all ages.

Came clean and safe in box, as described on the website. Beautiful reminder some of the greatest and most useful creations weren't creations at all.
