Heavy Element

Your heavy cube will almost make you believe it violates the laws of physics, making it an incredibly fun element to add to your home. Why do we say this? Even a 1 cm block of tungsten can knock you off your feet by how much it weighs.

 Although you can easily fit it n your palm, we doubt whether you’ll be able to carry such a great mass in your hands. Many buyers get a tungsten cube for this surprising property. 



Tungsten is one of the densest metals on the planet, accompanied by many other excellent properties. Tungsten is about 75 percent denser than iron and 50 percent denser than Silver metal. It is two times denser than steel, equaling to the density of gold. 

Its unique property of density also makes tungsten cubes extremely durable. The directional metallic bonds and size of atoms contribute to their density and durability.

Strong Alloy

In its basic form, tungsten is quite soft and squishy. Nevertheless, tungsten also works as a strong alloying metal with other metals like steel. It can incredibly increase the hardness and strength of metals. Tungsten also works as a strong alloying metal with other metals like steel. 

With 18% participation by weight and 2% by weight of alloy metal, tungsten forms an exceptionally strong alloy with fewer chances of wear and corrosion. This tougher version of tungsten can also increase the thermal properties of the other alloying element.


Corrosion Resistance

The tungsten cubes have high corrosion resistance, making them virtually last forever. Tungsten is so good at preventing corrosion that even mineral acid attacks only cause slight corrosive effects. 

The strong metallic bonds between the atoms of your desktop tungsten cube make it one of the most tensile elements. It reacts with chloride ions which is the probable cause of its corrosion resistance. Chloride ions fill up the pores, which would normally lead to corrosion.

Excellent Thermal Properties

We discussed how these heavy cubes seem indestructible even when thrown from rooftops or set on fire. What makes this metal so unique special is that it can withstand high temperatures. 

Tungsten has a melting point of 3422 C which makes it one of the most thermal resistant metals available in the market. This is also evident by its boiling point of 5660 degrees Centigrade, greater than any other metallic element. It stands against heat so well that it only slightly expands compared to other pure metals.

Fashionable Décor

Although tungsten cubes come with all the amazing properties mentioned earlier, it is useless unless it serves a greater purpose in your home. You can use your desktop tungsten cube as a conversation starter piece in your living room.
