Costa $200 an Ounce Now, But New Use May Make It Common. Cot-tinp $;i0 an ounce, zirconium is one of the most precious and useful metals employed, by scientists aud manufacturer to-day. It derives its name from the mineral zircon, varieties of which, known as jargon and hyacinth, have long been uwd bv jeweler for ornaments. The existence of the metal in rircon was dicovered l.'lO years ajto, but it has been discovered of recent years in larj.'e quantities in a certain ore known as brazilite, the deposrti of which in Brazil are practically inexhaustible. Since platinum became so scarce, it has been used in its stead. The Ger mans experimented with it with a view to jrettinfc armour-plate superior in hardness to steel. It can withstand such high temperatures that it has been found superior to all other metals for lining electrical furnaces. It is used in the manufacture of wire filaments for electric lights! for X-ray-work and enameling. The zirconium in dustry is a comparatively new one, in teresting developments being foreshad owed by the discoveries already made. Stray Stories. A Novel Tip.
