Titanium crystals[edit]

Original - A titanium crystal bar, high pure 99,995%, made by the iodide process at URALREDMET in the Soviet era. Weight ≈283g, ≈5.5 " long, ≈1 " diameter.
Reason
I came across this on commons FPC. It's got undeniably brilliant EV, clearly showing the shape of the crystals, colour of the metal, etc., and is high quality.

  • Support - When I spent time trying to relax, I performed a bunch of analysis of pictures and took notes. My note for this was "very cool". It holds up well, plus the image is very striking. Ottava Rima (talk) 18:32, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
  • Support. Interesting and high quality image. An explanation of how it came to be in this shape would be useful though. Diliff | (Talk) (Contribs) 19:17, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
    what do you mean: the sample or the photo? Please read the original image info too. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 23:19, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
I mean the sample. I found that it had been added to Crystal bar process (not mentioned in the nomination) which sort of explains the process, but it would have been nice to explain the significance of the shape of the bar in the nomination too. Diliff | (Talk) (Contribs) 07:42, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
OK; I have corrected the image describtion. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 07:55, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
