Element Description

Also known as "quicksilver", mercury is the only common metal that is liquid at room temperature. It is silvery-white, extremely dense and mobile. In its solid form, mercury is tin-white, ductile, and malleable. It is a poor conductor of heat, a fair conductor of electricity, and one of the more volatile metals. Mercury easily makes alloys with metals, such as gold, silver, and tin, known as amalgams.
