Liquid metal in a vacuum ampoule - Purity 99.9999% - Does not stick Not mercury:
High purity liquid Gallium Metal in ampoule - 99.9999% purity
NEW - Gallium sealed in ampoule under Vacuum.Gallium and glass are not good friends; under normal conditions gallium is extremely sticky and wettens the glass immediately and unrecoverable.
Under high vacuum and specially primed glass melted Gallium behaves like mercury and forms little spherules which quickly fuse together as soon as they touch each other. Making the picture therefore was quite tricky... Perfect for collectors, teachers and scientists.
In solid state gallium is hard and brittle like glass. But only by the warmth of your hand it melts! Gallium is a very rare metal and has a significant role in the production of Flat screen, mobile phones, LED and other semiconductor applications. Its naturall ocurring deposits are already depleted so the prices are going up.
In this form it can be handled safely. You can melt it and let it solidify unlimited without any change in quality or appearance!

Discovered in 1875 by P.E. Lecoq de Boisbaudran in Paris, France.
One of four metals which can be liquid at room temperature, gallium has the longest liquid range of any metal (2175C). Below its melting point, it is a hard, brittle, glassy, silvery white metal which is stable in both air and water. Gallium, along with indium and thallium which follow gallium in their group in the periodic table, is only found as a minor constituent of various minerals and has an abundance of 18 ppm in the earth's crust. Extraction of the element is achieved by electrolytic reduction in aqueous solution. Gallium is used in the semiconductor industry due to its semiconductor properties of alloys formed with phosphorus, arsenic and antimony. It is also used in the manufacture of light emitting diodes and microwave equipment.
Before Gallium was discovered in 1875, its existence along with many of its physical and chemical properties were accurately predicted by Dimitri Mendeleev as a result of his work on the periodic table of the elements.
