I've also taken the liberty of rearranging some of your images in the Featured picture categories: A lot were in geology, but, since they're synthetic, should really come under chemistry or (in one case) engineering. (We don't have a section for chemistry, so I went with "Other sciences"). Hope you don't mind. Shoemaker's Holiday Over 192 FCs served 10:36, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

Nickel image[edit]

I was looking at it and I understand his reasoning. To be hones, I was thinking the same thing myself when I did the initial change. A similar issue is with bismuth, and there it is more obvious. The Bi crystals look really pretty, but the infobox should have the best depiction of the element; oxides aren't ideal because although they do depict the fact that the metal gets oxidized easily, it distracts from the fact of how the metal should look like. In the Ni case, the green color is so distinct that it distracts and might confuse the reader. The best solution is to get the same image without the oxidation present and then everybody will win.

File:61_Pm_02_large.jpg[edit]

Pm is that radioactive? Are there any images of the element around at all? Do you happen to know anything of the Po, Pa, and Ac images I have uploaded? Nergaal (talk) 11:40, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

Yes, Pm is strong radioactive! And I know some images of Pm, Po, Pa and Ac in the german "Time-Life" book: "Die Materie". But not the matal form, only compounds. Our Tc image is from that book too. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 12:02, 5 December 2010 (UTC) P.S: please mail me a wiki email, then I can answer you more details ...!
If that book is the MATTER book by Ralph Lapp (sorry, I don't speak German), then I regret to have to inform you that the Pm image there is actually Pm2O3! :-( Lanthanum-138 (talk) 12:26, 14 May 2011 (UTC)
Ah, yes. That book is from Time-Life International. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 15:21, 14 May 2011 (UTC)
I uploaded those images some time ago: File:Pm oxide.jpg, File:Polonium.jpg, File:Actinium sesquioxide.jpg, File:Protactinium(V) oxide.jpg. Btw, Freywa would like you to get a picture of At to replace this picture. Materialscientist and I are rather doubtful you'd be able to get such a rare element, but just thought you'd like to know. Lanthanum-138 (talk) 03:09, 15 May 2011 (UTC)
The last five elements (Z ≤ 100) we do not have pictures of are Pm, At, Fr, Ac and Fm. Since these are all strongly radioactive, I doubt we will be able to obtain any pictures of them. Double sharp (talk) 11:17, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
Sorry. I can't also help you (and Wikipedia). I think it simply isn't possible to take an image from an very very small amounts of this elements. No people on this world saw an visible amount of your asked elements. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 20:40, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
Pm and Ac are the most likely. A microgram sample of Pm was once obtained, but no pictures were taken. Actinium is described as "glowing in the dark with a pale blue light", so there may be a chance that this glow was photographed. Double sharp (talk) 06:28, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
OK, OK. I think Pm and Ac are perhaps possible, but no Fm, At, and Fr. The half-life are simply too short. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 07:52, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
I agree. I'll remove Fr, At and Fm from WP:ELEM/PIC. Another problem with Fm is that although the half-life of 257Fm is 100.5(2) days, it is very difficult to synthesize a large enough quantity of Fm (see the fermium article) to allow a picture to be taken. This leaves only Pm and Ac without images. Double sharp (talk) 11:02, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

I saw this picture, and wonder what base unit you ruler is graded in?, that info is missing from your great images. Electron9 (talk) 23:36, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

Hi Electron9, the graduation is still "cm" in Europe. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 23:50, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
I didn't see that you were in Europe. But it's not a guarantee for used measurement system anyway. That's why it's good to have it in the picture caption ;) Electron9 (talk) 00:41, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

Source?[edit]

Just curious where do you get your samples from? Electron9 (talk) 00:47, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

Whitch samples do you mean? Are you interested for some element samples? --Alchemist-hp (talk) 21:59, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
Just generally curious.. ;), I guess they would cost a lot anyway. Electron9 (talk) 23:43, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

Hi Whiteghost.ink,
not yet ready, but I think I can take some and add it to the article. And thanks a lot for your barnstar :-) --Alchemist-hp (talk) 23:00, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
Perhaps: do you like these pictures: Nd-sulfate or Pr-sulfate? --Alchemist-hp (talk) 02:15, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
My favourite is the Bismuth because it is beautiful and I like the Gold crystals because they are so weird. Do you have a really clear one of Nickel chloride that could be added to Salt (chemistry)? If not, keep up the good work! Whiteghost.ink (talk) 09:07, 22 February 2013 (UTC)
