Pure Magnesium Metal shavings/turnings/filings. Magnesium is a chemical element; atomic number 12. Magnesium shavings can be used to prepare Grignard reagents, which are useful in organic synthesis, to remove Sulfur from Iron & Steel, and as a reducing agent for the production of pure Uranium metal. When ignited, Magnesium shavings produces extremely high temperatures and burns will a brilliant blue-white light rich in ultraviolet. This particular coarser grade of Magnesium Metal produces long lasting bright white sparks and finds use in Military signal flares as well as pyrotechnic as waterfall and illumination compositions.
