    I guess it is because Rhodium is fairly inert, corrosion resistant, hard and makes the object it is electroplated onto look shiny?

    ^^^^ what he said. It is a great material to plate in and not cheap to do so (ontoman is now doing it and indicated why it cost more in a thread somewhere)

    Contact ontoman a vendor and member here and well regarded by many (I've not used him). Here is the thread where he mentioned he was getting into rhodium.
