Be careful with it! I'm not trying to be alarmist, just use common sense and do a web search on vanadium toxicity before you start playing with it.

what are you searching ebay for?

I just checked ebay under ferro, vanadium, ferro vanadium, and ferrovanadium, and turned up nothing but sunglasses and a news paper clipping.

my bad, I was looking at Vanadinite, I guess you would have to alloy it to make what you need.

These people look like the sort of company that would sell you a small amount, at a relatively high price -
