Yep. That's the good stuff. My wife's engagement ring (tension setting),
and our wedding rings are made out of it.
Tubing made from the stuff is amazing... I was looking for some scrap
aluminum tubing at the local recylcer. He said "Sorry no Al, shame you
can't use Titanium, I've got a bunch of that." I bought 5 pieces of tubing
4' long 1" diameter, very thin wall. $10 Used it to make the rear subframe
on my motorcycle. The bolts that held it on weighed more than the tubing.
Wish I would have bought more.
