  1. I am so exhausted that I’m nodding off for minutes at a time — I’m rounding 36 hours without sleep. I left suggestions for tin at the end of the Indium thread, but I can’t be the one to carry them. G’night!

    1. Neat!

      What might not be obvious from this is that something is not considered a mineral until it is found in nature, and often it has a mineral name distinct from the chemical name.

      (The phrasing of the article is consistent with this: It’s described as a new mineral, despite that compound being well known beforehand.)

      The bigger question is, how much crap did you have to wade through on CNN to find this?
