Where can I get a high voltage (20kV-50kV) relay at a good price?

I need a high voltage DPDT relay, rated between 20kV-50kV, with a 12V coil and a switching speed of at least 1MHz.

Does anyone know a good place to find one at a good price?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You can find vacuum relays that may handle the voltage, but they are electromechanical devices. The maximum on/off rate is likely to be 2 Hz.

What is the application, and how much current gets switched?

The application is just for a research project. A high speed switching transformer, done in a different way to see the effects.

The current will be 100mA at most.
