Thanks for this heads up because last year i managed to vacuum my 10 mm special edition tungsten cube and couldn`t find a new(I searched for 1 cm scale cubes and not 10 mm). Now i ordered Titanium, Aluminium, Copper and Tungsten cubes, the Titanium came in mail today. Look and feel genuine. Weighs in at 4.6 gram on my hobby scale. 

 

I ordered directly from China because they had free shipping it basicly halfed the costs. This is the seller i bought from: https://www.ebay.com...=p2047675.l2559

Do they have a number on the back side like; 9999, 9995, 995? What does those mean?

 

And there is another number in ex on Tungsten: Ar = 183.84

 

Magnesium: Ar = 24.305

I will guess the 9999 9995 and 995 are purity: i.e. 99.99%, 99.95%, and 99.5% pure. Kind of like some of my sterling silver has 800 stamped on it (80.0% silver).

 

The Ar numbers are definitely atomic weight of the element in question.
