Heraeus Precious Metals Ruthenium Powder
, and are one of the only retail suppliers of this rare and important metal in the world.
After initial reports on the discovery of the rare transition metal ruthenium, this companion element to platinum was isolated in 1844 and was named after Ruthenia (Latin for Russia,
homeland of the discoverer).
In 2006, the price for ruthenium surged by ten times to more than $800 per ounce, reflecting new technological developments in the electronics industry. That year, new production
capacity had to be set up to support the coating of computer hard drives with ruthenium.
The cost of ruthenium has throttled back considerably since its boom in 2006. Due to the limited supply of this rare metal and the burgeoning manufacturing of computer hard drives,
ruthenium will be a wise long–term investment for experienced buyers.
