Elements according to relative abundance in the Earth's crust

Back to list

This graphic is easy to understand after reading the title, and representing information in this way takes a known image (the periodic table) and makes it intriguing by warping it. However, the information it displays is inaccurate. The rare elements are not abundant enough to even show up on the graphic. The graphic was likely made to appeal as a teaching tool, but by spreading false information it is conveying misleading information.
