Why Tungsten Cubes Make Great Gifts

Tungsten Cubes recently became a major hit around the world as people from different industries, including crypto and social media started investing in these cubes over the news of apparent shortage. While there was no actual shortage of these tungsten cubes, they became a sensation and are now becoming scarce and precious over time. 

People are now buying several tungsten cubes not only for themselves but for their loved ones as well. These cubes have interesting properties, which make them a great option to give to someone. We are going to go through some basic reasons why these tungsten cubes make great gifts. They could be a great idea for your next anniversary, a peer’s birthday, or a little gift for yourself. Let us begin.

Reasons to Buy Tungsten Cubes as Gifts

Following are some of the reasons why this heavy cube is a great option if you want to gift it to someone.

A Unique Gift

Gifts are all about making the ones special in our lives feel unique. There are millions of gift options that you can go for but people usually want to gift something unique to their loved ones. This is why a tungsten Cube could just be what you need if you want to buy something special.

Only a few people around the world own these tungsten cubes, which significantly increases their appeal, especially if you are buying them for someone who loves having interesting things in their collection.

.Variety of Sizes and weights

Let’s be honest, these tungsten cubes are a bit pricy, but that doesn’t mean you cannot buy them. One of the best things about these cubes is that they are available in various sizes. The smallest available tungsten cube is around 1cm small, whereas the bigger ones go up to 4 inches depending on your budget. Each of these cubes has a different weight, but you can view the following list for reference.

  • 1cm Tungsten Alloy Cube
  • 0.5" Tungsten Alloy Cube
  • 1.0" Tungsten Alloy Cube
  • 1.5" Tungsten Alloy Cube
  • 2.0" Tungsten Alloy Cube
  • 2.5" Tungsten Alloy Cube
  • 3.0" Tungsten Alloy Cube
  • 4.0" Tungsten Alloy Cube

The weights of these different sizes are as follows:

  • 0.64 oz (18g)
  • 0.08 lbs (0.036 kg)
  • 0.66 lbs (0.30 kg)
  • 2.2 lbs (1 kg)
  • 5.2 lbs (2.36 kg)
  • 10.19 lbs (4.62 kg)
  • 17.6 lbs (7.98 kg)
  • 41.6 lbs (18.88 kg

In addition, you can find the tungsten metal in a sphere shape too, but we believe they look classier in the cubical shape. 

Corrosion Resistant

The tungsten cubes have high corrosion resistance, making them virtually last forever (which is the idea behind a perfect gift). You can gift this tungsten cube to someone so that they can remember you with it for years to come. In addition to this, the tungsten cube retains its original look, so they will not need to be replaced or require frequent maintain.

Market Value

Gifts aren’t always about the price, but it still matters to give something that’s worthy. Considering the current market situation, these tungsten cubes aren’t going down in value any time soon. This is because these cubes are available at prices as high as $3000. While that doesn’t mean you necessarily have to go all out and buy the most expensive one; you can still get one that has a good price in the market


The most common reason why the tungsten cubes became a sensation is that they have a unique structure. While tungsten alloys are one of the strongest metals in the world, tungsten in its pure form holds a soft and squishy alien-like look. This makes it a great gift option for people who love collecting unique things. You can even add a little note with the cube to make it more personalized. 

Home Décor

People are using these tungsten cubes for everything ranging from making videos, doing experiments to using them as paperweights. However, we think all those things do not justify the majesty and exterior of this amazing metal cube. 

The tungsten cube works best as a home decoration piece, as you can add it to the center of a room so it stands out. If you are looking for an alluring decoration piece, you shouldn’t look any further, as the tungsten cube is just what you need. 

You can also get a desktop tungsten cubeand enhance the overall look of your rooms to add more beauty.

Extra-Terrestrial Look

Another important thing that you might consider is that the tungsten cubes have a unique texture and look nothing like the usual metals we see around us. Several online communities even called the metal an alien property, while some comic book fans even equated it with the famous Marvel comics indestructible metal adamantium. These comparisons are mainly because of the durability and color of the metal. 

Thermal Properties

If you feel like you still aren’t convinced if you should invest in tungsten cubes for someone, think of their thermal properties. We already talked about how this metal seems indestructible; what makes this metal more special is that it can withstand high temperatures as well. Tungsten has a melting point of 3422 C which makes it one of the most thermal resistant metals available in the market. 

Your loved ones can still enjoy your gift even if it ends up in the fire accidentally, making it a clear and ideal choice for a gift.
