A Work of Art and Science

A visually stunning presentation of the periodic table suitable for reception areas, board rooms or wherever works of art might be displayed. Each element sample is individually embedded inside a beautiful solid lucite block. The blocks can be arranged in the familiar grid of the periodic table or arranged in more unusual ways.


Lighting and framing
Various lighting and framing options are available separately for presenting the clear acrylic cubes. These can be custom produced from suitable materials to match specific interiors. Contact us to discuss your requirements. A standard engraved backing frame in acrylic is available which provides the name, symbol and atomic number of each element in highly attractive illuminated lettering.

Safety issues
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.
