I. MERCURY EXPLAINED

Mercury is an element with the symbol Hg on the periodic table. Mercury is commonly known as quicksilver and the reason why the symbol is Hg is because it was once called hydrargyrum. Mercury is the only known metallic element to be in a liquid state at standard atmospheric conditions. Mercury occurs naturally throughout the world mostly as cinnabar (mercury sulfide). Vermilion is a pigment created from grinding natural cinnabar or synthetic mercury sulfide.

Mercury is commonly known to be used in thermometers and barometers. These devices are used to tell differences in the atmosphere, and are used by weather forecasters and scientists alike. Mercury is also used in amalgam (mercury and metal alloy) in dental restoration.

Poisoning due to Mercury is a result from exposure to water-soluble forms such as mercury chloride or methylmercury, through inhalation of the vapors or ingestion.

Mercury is one of my favorite elements and is the inspiration for this set!
