Mercury Element Cube
Mercury's atomic number is 80 and its symbol is Hg. Mercury is one of only two elements that are liquid at room temperature along with bromine.
Mercury has been found in tombs dating back to 1500 BC. Mercury was once thought to prolong life and heal physical ailments when ingested. Now we know that mercury is extremely toxic. Some countries still use a product called “Mercurochrome” on cuts to kill bacteria. Mercury is also used to make electrical switches, thermometers, and light bulbs.
The mercury in this cube element display is encased safely inside a sealed glass ampule within crystal clear lucite acrylic. That way you can safely display this element and watch mercury slosh back and forth within.
