|Chopped bulk piece.|
Description supplied by the source:
This block of tantalum is the 4N raw material that is used by itself or as an additive in alloy melts-it is rather intimidating to think of the machinery that could chop bulk tantalum as thick as this so cleanly, as clearly happened. This piece also shows the internal structure, which you can see is probably not ideal for many uses-t is not homogeneous at all, and there are almost certainly voids.
