This collection shows all the samples available in the very nice element collection available for sale from The Red Green and Blue company in England. This set was kindly donated by Max Whitby, the director of the company. To learn more about the set you can visit my page about element collecting for a general description, or the company's website which includes many photographs and pricing details.
I have two photographs of each sample from the set: One taken by me and one supplied by the company. You can see photographs of all the samples displayed in a periodic table format: my pictures, or their pictures. Or you can see both sets in numerical order with bigger pictures in this collection: The pictures on the left are mine, generally with the samples taken out of the bottles, while the pictures on the right are from the company and show the samples in the bottles exactly as they come in the set. (There is some variation in the form of some of the samples, because the sets are not all identical. And in a few cases I haven't taken my own picture yet, so the two are identical.)
Click any element below to see all the samples of that element, or click on the sample picture to go directly to the description of that sample.
