What Is The Average Cost Of Scandium Per Gram/Pound? Average Scandium Price

Commercially, scandium is obtained as a byproduct of the uranium refining. Scandium is generally too expensive to use and on average costs $1400 per 100 grams. It is used to make high-intensity lamps. Scandium iodide is added to mercury vapor lamps to produce a light source with a color resembling sunlight. It reacts rapidly with many acids. The blue color of aquamarine is attributed to the presence of scandium. The radioactive isotope Sc-46 is used as a tracer in refinery crackers for crude oil. It is almost as light as aluminum but it has a much higher melting point. However, it is not used in the manufacture of aircraft owing to its high cost.
