Give this clever coffee mug duo to your favorite couple, and let them decide who is W.I.Se. & who is W.I.S.Er.! The only question is- which one will you drink from? Inspired by The Big Bang Theory, this clever concoction of the Periodic Table of Elements showcases a brilliant way to incorporate chemistry-chic into drinkware. The 11oz. Periodic Table Wise & Wiser Mug Set is dishwasher safe, and perfect for any age. They even make the perfect Periodically Inspired gift for a coffee-drinkin' chemistry-lover!

What makes you W.I.Se.?

W.- W(Tungsten). Tungsten is extremely hard to melt, so when large pieces are needed it is often sintered into solid form from loose powder, like this cube. The biggest application by far is tungsten wire for incandescent light bulbs.

I.- Iodine sublimates into a beautiful violet vapor when heated: There's a torch under the plate in this photo. Iodine and iodine solutions were used as disinfectants before better antiseptic agents were found.

Se.- Selenium occurs in (fairly) pure form in nature. This native selenium is exactly as it came out of the ground. It is used in many light-sensing applications: photocopiers, automatic light switches and light meters.

What makes you W.I.S.Er.?
W.- W(Tungsten). Tungsten is extremely hard to melt, so when large pieces are needed it is often sintered into solid form from loose powder, like this cube. The biggest application by far is tungsten wire for incandescent light bulbs.

I.- Iodine sublimates into a beautiful violet vapor when heated: There's a torch under the plate in this photo. Iodine and iodine solutions were used as disinfectants before better antiseptic agents were found.

S.- Sulfur is one of the few elements found pure in nature. This "native" sulfur is probably of volcanic origin. Also called brimstone, it oxidizes and is responsible for the characteristic smell of many volcanoes.

Er.- Erbium is used to dope fiber optic cables to improve their information carrying capability, which it does by helping to amplify the signal. It can also impart interesting colors to pottery glazes.
