Why such an interest in a rare earth metal, you might ask.

Tungsten, or wolframium, is a chemical element with the symbol W and atomic number 74. Tungsten is a rare metal found naturally on earth almost exclusively as compounds with other elements. Its density makes it feel unnaturally heavy for its size, when formed into shapes such as spheres or cubes.

Apparently, tungsten cubes became popular with cryptocurrency enthusiasts late last year, leading to a tungsten craze. It’s quite clear that the official rebranding of Midwest Tungsten Service as rides on the increased demand for its tungsten products.
