Features

Rhodium reflects more light than any other precious metal. That’s why it is used for the mirrors of high-performance telescopes that study the farthest reaches of the universe. Additionally, rhodium is rarer than gold. The chemical process used to extract it is so expensive that the annual world production would fit under a living room table. So when Paul McCartney’s record sales left gold and platinum in the dust, in 1979 he received the world’s first and only rhodium record.
