3D3DVanadium crunchies.
When Max Whitby orders kilograms of rare earths and other elements from China, I sometimes piggyback a bit for my collection. This half-kilogram bottle of high-purity vanadium is a great example. It would be prohibitively expensive from a domestic chemical supplier, but as part of a bulk shipment from China, the price is a lot more reasonable.
He orders elements for the small element sets he sells, as well as for the large museum displays we produce together in a joint venture.
"Crunchies", by the way, is a British term for a particular type of breakfast cereal, which Max feels this vanadium greatly resembles.
