( elbows )
Ultra pure quantities of the element Lithium (atomic number 3),
ideal for element collectors of those conducting experiments/producing
alloys with pure Lithium metal. Lithium is a very soft metal that can
easily be cut with a knife. It reacts violently with water, liberating
explosive Hydrogen gas and igniting it. It is a flammable metal and can
cause severe burns if it comes in contact with the skin. This material
should only be handled by those familiar with its properties.
Lithium is shipped in a poly bottle under Mineral Oil within a metal
can. Lithium is a very lightweight metal (so lightweight, that it
actually floats on water).
Elbow macaroni shaped - several pieces included, total weight: 5 grams.
Use safety precautions
(wear eye protection and gloves) when working with Lithium metal.
Violently/explosively reacts with water and may ignite on contact with
air. Causes severe burns on contact with body tissue. See MSDS link below.
