Argentium price

Hi All. This quote from Cynthia Eid in another thread got me
thinking:

“Yes, AS costs more than SS. When SS was $10/ounce, AS was about
$11. When SS is $30 or more per ounce, AS is several dollars more
per ounce.”

So did germanium prices spike at the same time? Did the cost of
fabrication jump too? Was the 10% premium continued in order to
maintain an image? Did the marketing department just see a windfall
profit opportunity?

Things that make you go hmmm…
