Yttrium is a silvery-metallic transition metal, similar to the lanthanides. It is found in most rare-earth minerals.
Atomic number: 39
Atomic weight: 88.90584
Element category: transition metal
The following abbreviations are often used:
• RE = rare earth
• REM = rare earth metals
• REE = rare earth elements
• REO = rare earth oxides
• REY = rare earth elements and yttrium
• LREE = light rare earth elements (Sc, La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Pm, Sm, Eu, and Gd; also known as the cerium group)
• HREE = heavy rare earth elements (Y, Tb, Dy, Ho, Er, Tm, Yb, and Lu; also known as the yttrium group)
Edgetech Industries LLC presents you with high purity REE products and good service, the main products are Scandium, and HREE (yttrium group).
