Slice of very large hot wire decomposition rod.
Gillian Pearce must have one amazing house. After getting my first large hafnium sample (see above) from her, about a year later I got an email saying she'd found another hafnium lump around the house, nicer than the first one, and was I interested? Of course I said absolutely, I'm always interested in a nice lump of hafnium, as anyone would be. Then a few days later I got another email saying, sorry, she's misplaced that lump, but while searching for it, she ran across yet another lump, not quite as nice, but still bigger than the first one. Now what I want to know is, what on earth does a house look like where you can run across a fistful of hafnium while you're looking for a different fistful of hafnium! Is there zirconium in the sofa cushions? Molybdenum dust swept under the carpets?
Anyway, this is a lovely slice.
