I just checked the website of Carolina Biological supply.
They have laboratory grade Calcium Chloride (Anhydrous).

I recall vaguely from high-school chemistry classes that
it was something one had to be careful about (it's either
Calcium chloride or Calcium carbide ... one of those was
nasty stuff!). Anyone know?
