I recently made a purchase from Gallium Source LLC. The calcium metal arrived today. It was dry (no paraffin) and had a golden tinge to it, the result of a thin layer of oxide. It is surprisingly light. It dissolves rather slowly in cold water but much more rapidly when acetic acid is added. 10 grams cost $13.00 including shipping.
