    lol the website says Zr is a rare earth metal. That is such a confusing way to say Zr is rare.

    I think you are confusing oxygen anion and oxygen molecules.

    Nothing confusing here (and no, they don't mean it is rare).

    anything about my actual question please?

    My research is Rare Earths so don't worry, I know these stuff.

    I meant that Zr is not rare earth elements. However, I suspected that most likely the author of the website meant that Zr is just simply an element that is rare, which I thought would cause confusion among those who don't know much about what "Rare Earth" really means.

    what do you mean exactly?
    It is not possible to pump oxygen molecules from a gas chamber?
    Or platinum is required to convert them to ions and then to pump them?
