GENiUS Coffee Cup by Periodically Inspired

Regular price $14.95

The perfect gift for a coffee-drinkin' chemistry-lover, this brainy, 11 oz. ceramic mug has a matte black finish with a white imprint and white interior. Microwave safe, and although this and any imprinted mug is "dishwasher safe", the imprint will last longest (just about forever) if hand washed.

What makes you a GENIUS?
★ Ge. Germanium is sold commercially in ingot bars that have an internal crystal structure, and is used in light emitting diodes and semiconductors.
★ Ni. Nickel's main form is pure nickel which is sold commercially. A typical use is in electroplating baths, where they are slowly dissolved and redeposited on products. Nickels (five-cent) coins are made of 75% copper. Only 25% is nickel, which makes the name a bit misleading.
★ U. Uranium is used in armor-piercing ammunition and counterweights. Only 20% less radioactive than natural uranium, it creates deadly hazards when used in anger.
★ S. Sulfur is one of the few elements found pure in nature. This "native" sulfur is probably of volcanic origin. Also called brimstone, it oxidizes and is responsible for the characteristic smell of many volcanoes.

The Genius Mug is manufactured in China, but imprinted right here in New England with a design created by the maker in Rhode Island. 3.8" tall.
