After collecting for several years, we began selling off surplus element samples on eBay in 2012. Business took off quickly and we decided to expand and offer samples of just about every collectable element at low prices. Started in 2017, Collect The Periodic Table is here to offer you all of the same samples we currently have on eBay and the rest we can't list due to eBay rules and regulations. We believe in offering element samples at low prices with free shipping where possible. If there's something special your looking for like an arc cast pellet, large or unique sample, etc, please let us know. Thank you for taking the time to visit our store and we hope you enjoy the elements as much as we do!
