That is actually a fairly reasonable price at this point, which isn't saying much. I am no longer ceriuming my bases, just surfaces that really need luster. I also think the price of cerium to be really volatile, given that the Chinese put a $100 per KG export tax on it, they can just as easily take it off under pressure. It's not that rare a material but it is a political football. I would caution against buying more than you absolutely need.
