Holy Cow!

The other 'incidentally occurring' element, Np, element 93, is right below Pm, also in the 5th position in the f block. 93 is 3x31, just as 62 is 2x31. Element 62, Sm is right above Pu, 94 (again 2x47 Lucas). Also in the sixth positions here are 26, Fe;, 44, Ru; and 76, Os. The latter are capable of attaining the maximum 8+ oxidation state along with Xe, 54. And curiously, 54 is half 108, the atomic number of Hs (also able to take +8?) below Os. There is a kind of hidden grand pattern here.

Tc and Pm

Atomic numbers 43, and 61. Both are five positions into their respective blocks (d, f). Both highly unstable relative to other below lead. 61-43=18, Lucas number. 61+43=104=8x13, both Fibonacci numbers.

Oh, lest I forget, some of us believe that 120 may be the last element. If so, then there are 26 elements remaining. This is twice 13, the Fibonacci number. Weird stuff.

The other day I noted that Nickel-62 was the most stable isotope, relating to the Golden Ratio, and also to its possession of 34 neutrons (Fibonacci). Today I was again looking through that font of received wisdom, Wikipedia, this time at the page on the PT, and was interested to note that 94 elements were found naturally (3 incidentally, 91 otherwise). 94 is twice 47, the Lucas number.

Thats terrible rhinos are my favorite animal, to learn that a type of the species may have died sucks.
