Are you talking about Copper (I) chloride?

Are you talking about Copper (I) chloride? If so then yes, it is very hard to find. You can get 100grams from a chemical supply for around $100.  :o

100$/100g? WTF!?

The first catalog I grabbed and looked up the price of cuprous chloride, CuCl, in had it listed in the 97% pure category for $13.50/100g that is NOT expensive!  ;D

97% should be just fine for 99% of uses for this compound. The most expensive purity, 99.9%+ pure, is still only $60.00/100g.

Look harder.  ;D

Do-it-yourself CuCl

40 g of CuCl2 are dissolved in 400 ml of 20% hydrochloric acid. 40 g of elemental copper (wire or shredded) are added and the solution is heated (on the water bath) until the previously  dark brown-green solution has become almost colorless.
The (filtrated) solution is poured into cold water (I'd propose DI ice-water, about 2l), the white, precipitated CuCl is filtered off and washed frequently with cold water. Product should be sucked dry on a buechner funnel and dried in an evacuated dessicator over silica gel for best results.

SWIK has seen 1kg CuCl for around £40 (about $60). I'd try somewhere else if I were you!
