Magnesium metal ingot - one troy ounce - .9999 bullion


First isolated in England in 1808 by Sir Humphrey Davy, magnesium is the eighth most common element in the earth's crust and the third most common element dissolved in seawater. It is also present in all human cells, is essential to life and has a myriad of industrial uses. It is about 1/3 less dense than aluminum with which it is alloyed to create ultralight structural components of high strength used in aeronautics, automobiles and even in beverage cans. It is used in the production of steel, titanium, glass and cement and also has uses in the electronics, chemical, medical, and agricultural industries. Magnesium shavings and powder are highly flammable and burn at high temperature giving off intense white light. It is thus also used in fireworks, flares, lighters and in flash photography. Approximately 80% off worldwide magnesium production comes from China.

Inscribed on our ingots are the chemical symbol (Mg), purity (99.99%), weight (one troy ounce), and a serial number (this number is unique and will vary). On the reverse is our logo. These ingots are lightly polished, similar to the one pictured. There can be tiny edge dings, light surface scratches, and other small imperfections. As always, weight and purity are guaranteed by Rare World Metals Mint. Magnesium is extremely flammable, especially in powder form. As we suggest with all of our metals please keep them intact and in a safe place, do not ingest, and keep them away from children.

Each ingot will be shipped with an assay certificate and every shipment will include our velvet logo bag. If you are not completely satisfied with any purchase from us, you have 30 days to return it for a full refund (buyer to pay return shipping). Domestic shipping is free for all orders over $99 (enter code free shipping at checkout). For orders of $99 or under, domestic shipping is $9.95. International shipping is via DHL, FedEx, or USPS international express and costs $45 for shipments up to a pound (9 one ounce ingots or less including packaging materials) and $10 for each additional pound. International customers please be aware that your country may levy import duties and/or VAT taxes on your purchase from us. We have nothing to do with this and cannot pay it for you. If you refuse our package because of this extra cost we will take it back and will refund your order in full once received minus the cost of the return shipping. If you are unsure what these import costs will be please check with your country's customs office.
