Tin is a chemical element with the symbol Sn (for Latin: stannum) and atomic number 50

Tin is a chemical element with the symbol Sn.Tin has many uses. It takes a high polish and is used to coat other metals to prevent corrosion, such as in tin cans, which are made of tin-coated steel. Alloys of tin are important, such as soft solder, pewter, bronze and phosphor bronze. A niobium-tin alloy is used for superconducting magnets.

Held long enough, gallium will melt in the hand as it liquefies at temperature of 29.77 °C (85.59 °F) (slightly above room temperature). Its melting point is used as a temperature reference point. The alloy Galinstan (68.5% Ga, 21.5% In, 10% Sn) has an even lower melting point of −19 °C (−2 °F). From its discovery in 1875 until the semiconductor era, gallium was used primarily as an agent to make low-melting alloys.

Crystals of gallium. The chemical element gallium is a rare, soft silvery metallic poor metal. It occurs in trace amounts in bauxite and zinc ores. Gallium is notable for its stunning silvery color and its solid metal fractures conchoidally like glass.

Cobalt glass beads found in Scandinavian Bronze Age tombs reveal trade connections between Egyptians and Mesopotamia 3,400 years ago — and similar religious rituals. Stunning glass beads found in Danish Bronze Age burials dating to 3400 years ago turn out to have come from ancient Egypt – in fact, from the workshop that made the

A chemical analysis pinpoints Mesopotamia as the source of this glass bead, featuring inlaid eyes of yellow and white glass. The bead was discovered in a Danish grave. Mikkelsen, National Museum of DenmarkNews
