The Heritage Periodic Table Display (Framed)
- 6.5" x 8" x 1.25"
- 83 elements
- Cast in acrylic
- Custom Frame
- Certificate of Authenticity Included
- Beware of scams
The framed periodic table offers the same beauty of the unframed version but with the option of mounting it to the wall. The frame is wide enough to also sit on a desk without support.
2019 is the 150th anniversary of the year of the discovery of the periodic element system by Dmitri Mendeleev. In celebration of the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements, we are placing our periodic tables on an unprecedented sale.
Introducing the world's first and only miniature Periodic Table with the actual elements in it! Over the last year, we have successfully collected each and every stable element. After considerable R&D, we have finally developed a method of embedding each element in acrylic and we have to say, the result is awesome!
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
The Heritage Periodic Table (Framed) measures approximately 6.5" x 8" x 1.25". The collection contains 83 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 smashed with a hammer. The size of the element samples is typically no larger than 5mm in any direction.
The Heritage Periodic Table Display contains pure bubbles of the gaseous elements (Xenon, Krypton, Argon, Neon, Helium, Oxygen, Nitrogen, and Hydrogen).
A Few of the Elements
We tried to source some awesome specimens while collecting the elements. Pictured above is the sample of silicon included in the Periodic Tables. The specimen is a silicon wafer with microcircuits (dies) manufactured into the surface. Wafer semiconductor material is notoriously pure (except for a small amount of dopant atoms). We thought it would be awesome to see a finished silicon IC in the Periodic Table, so here it is.
Bismuth is a rather dense metal that forms fascinating crystals when it is melted and allowed to solidify under the right conditions. Although bismuth is a heavy element (number 83) and falls next to radioactive elements, the metal is considered the last stable element in the periodic table. That said, it was discovered in 2003 that bismuth is ever so slightly radioactive (its half-life is incredibly long though).
Cobalt is one of a select few elements that interact with magnetic fields. This metal finds use in batteries, permanent magnets, pigments, alloys, and many other applications. Interestingly, compounds of cobalt are necessary in metabolic processes in animals. Like many other metals, however, soluble salts of cobalt are considered poisonous.
Vanadium is one of the most underrated elements in the entire periodic table. Not only is the crystal structure of this metal amazing, the element is used in extremely important applications. Small amounts of vanadium mixed with steel will greatly increase the strength of the alloy. High-speed steel - a tool steel used in machining applications - contains between 1-5% of vanadium.

There are at least three fraudulent companies - www.jinniestore.com and www.dscarf.com and www.chancecraft.com- that are advertising the Heritage Periodic Table for $79.00. These are credit card phishing scam websites that do not necessarily ship the product and we are not affiliated with the sites. These products often only contain pictures of the elements not actual samples. We apologize for any confusion. If you have purchased from these sites be vigilant about fraudulent purchases on your cards.
