On the Cusp: Zirconium March 20 2015

Our first batch of Zirconium is nearly complete. Zirconium and hafnium have some striking similarities as well as differences analogous to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde as we first postulated with our release of hafnium last Summer. Our zirconium ingots contain a small hafnium impurity of 1.87% which is nearly impossible to separate given the similar chemical properties. We expect to have them available next week.
