Carbon's atomic number is 6 and its symbol is C. Carbon atoms can bond together in many different ways producing graphite, diamond, and buckminsterfullerene. Carbon gets its name from the Latin word “coal” because carbon makes up a large portion of coal. Carbon is part of all organic life. When combined with hydrogen and oxygen, it forms important compounds including sugars, alcohols, fats, and esters. The diamond allotrope of carbon is used widely in industry for its hardness and heat conductivity.
I got it as a desk piece for my partner and it’s his new blanket. He is always holding it in his hand while working at his computer. He's always glancing at it all the time. He even uses it as a back scratcher as weird as that sounds.He uses it to just look at when talking on the phone. He eventually wants the entire set if cubes. Great product!
I was hesitant to spend this much on a chunk of carbon, but I trust engineered labs and have liked a lot of my other purchases from the business (their periodic table is great!). I was disappointed this time though, the lettering was crooked and the surface looked a little scratched.
