Zirconium beads are more dense than silica, yet less expensive than stainless steel. 1.4 mm Zirconium Beads are suitable for homogenizing soft tissues, insects, and leaf material.
Beads are ready-to-use, having been treated with acidified water to remove fine particles, dust, and other impurities typically found in untreated beads, and further baked to drive off organic impurities.
