$27.00 per lb is actually a very good price these days BUT it doesn't say much about the grade of the stuff. There are some very cheap ceriums that are cut with other stuff. Any of the ceriums used in automated polishing are generally very low grade. I would view 65-70% as low grade and a particle size at 2.5 micron is pretty coarse.

Just sayin'
