Coolest Elements of the Periodic Table
The Top Ten
I suppose, since the title is COOLEST Elements (blah blah blah), Bismuth is one of the coolest and probably the most beautiful of all elements. If all elements had the same rarity, I bet Bismuth would be the most expensive. I just adore the rainbow of colors dancing around. Right now I am not voting on the most essential, but the coolest. The prettiest. The awesomest. For Bismuth is the most beautiful element, in my opinion. I don't want to keep rambling about the beauty of Bismuth, so goodbye, my friends.
This element is so pretty and it's also super underrated. Google it, it's so pretty!
Bismuth (No.83) is beautiful element. Bismuth is shiny and constantly changes color. Everyone can be dazzled by this element.
Anyone who doesn't know what this is, google it. You will be presently surprised. - SolacressV 11 Comments
Essential to life, and it forms pretty sparkling diamonds. It can also form buckminsterfullerene.
Carbon is life. You could die without it.
Essential and cool.Can form the strongest material called Carbyn.Graphene is no longer the world's strongest material but it is also made with carbon.Diamonds are also made with it.Overall Carbon is the coolest element.
How cool is a non-toxic metal that melts in your hand? It's like mercury, but you don't need protective gloves in order to handle it!
Mercury that isn't toxic. Wow
Melts in your hand and isn't toxic
Gallium is not a non-toxic alternative to mercury
It takes a long time to get a large amount of Gallium to melt in your hands.
Also, while it is non-toxic, it can cause skin irritations. Even if it doesn't, it will stain your hand like crazy.
If you accidentally spill it somewhere, you'll have to clean some dark grey stains.
Mercury on the other hand,
It does not stick or stain anywhere and can be cleaned easily thanks to its high surface tension. Unless you're working with mercury salts like Dimethylmercury, you will not get any serious poisoning by just holding it in your hand. Even if you are dumb enough to eat mercury, there is a good chance that it will pass through your system without any ill effects since its really slippery.
It is my least favourite element. Gallium is a better and cooler substitute. Mercury is extremely dangerous and a few drops could kill you.
The chuck norris of all elements..
Hands down way more interesting than gallium. Its really dense, and its completely liquid at room temprature. It's the only metal and one of the only two elements liquid at room temprature. It was known to the ancients and was used (and is still used) in a wide array of applications. You would not have fluorecent lamps without mercury and up until very recently, it was used in thermometers, tilt switches, batteries, dental fillings, gold mining and so on. It is amazing. - bstrz04

Helium is fascinating stuff! Helium-4 becomes superfluid at 2-3K, one of the greatest quantum effects there is! It was discovered in the spectrum of the Sun, which is also cool! The only element with a boiling point below absolute zero! And what fun we all have when we inhale it!
Helium is the most fascinating element there is! You simply cannot argue!
P.S. it also goes to show that Physics is better than Chemistry!
Who doesn't like something that makes your voice high pitched and make things FLY~! SQUEE! WARNING: Don't drink to much or you can die!
The resultant element of mixing Silver's and Gold's colors and not properties. COOL & has the unexpected explosion as well as remarkable extremes.
The crystalline solid form of the element is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen after Bismuth! - JuliaRandomly
This element is pretty cool but its underrated.
It's one of the elements i.e. more expensive than gold. - JuliaRandomlyV 5 Comments
The odd man out. Everything around it isn't radioactive, but it is.
Every isotope including the original is radioactive
Californium is the most expensive I know about so if you're looking for money then that's better
It gives you so much wealth! Hey Who doesn't like money eh?!
Neodymium is used in super strong magnets. Also, I think the name is cool.
Used in subwoofers
Holmium has the highest magnetic strength of all elements. Who doesn't like magnets?
Often found in rat poisons, and can be cut with your average kitchen knife at room temperature. Cool. - Cyri
Really reactive with water, unfortunately, it lasts too short to find out
Actually, francium is less reactive than cesium due to its mass - bstrz04
Sounds like urine. Lol.
Highest melting and boiling points of all elements, and essential for light bulbs! How cool is Tungsten?!
Almost as hard as diamond, melting point of 3422 degrees Celsius, when alloyed with steel produces some of the strongest cutting tools in the world
Melting point & boiling point second highest of all elements & highest of all metals. When combined with carbon, it becomes tungsten carbide, a substance harder than diamond. 'enough said.
Very interesting and poisonous element. Killed many people throughout history but also took care of pests.
Come on, who doesn't love deadly toxins?
I keep joking I put Arsenic in my friends' food. That is a use.
While its know for its dark past, a compound of arsenic (Gallium Arsenide) is used in the most efficient solar panels. - bstrz04V 4 Comments
A very interesting metal. Also, it isn't naturally present on Earth, so if it is discovered, it is sign of a meteorite strike. - Rocko
This is the second densest metal and can not be corroded even a 2000 degrees Celsius
The "rarest" metal. - JuliaRandomly
Xenon glows purple when an electric current is run through it.
Great shade of blue! - JuliaRandomly
In my opinion, Astatine must be #1. It belongs to the same group as that of Halogens like Fluorine, Chlorine, Bromine and Iodine, but is completely different from them. It is extremely radioactive and is a product of nuclear decay. Only 31 grams of Astatine are known to be present in the Earth - styLIShT
The scientifics don't even know its color. (probably black) - waldo
Oh, What would you do without glass? Glass is 75 per cent made of SiO2.
Without it we would not be able to drive our cars
Most abundant element in the universe - JuliaRandomly
Is the best
The most poisonous, strongest and of cause coolest element
Most electronegative element - JuliaRandomly
It's the densest element out there - bstrz04
Toxic, yet essential to life. And it's a lovely shade of green!
Best element ever
First radioactive element in the Periodic Table.
Actually, the first element without any stable isotopes is Technetium - bstrz04
Most available pricey element
Neon is the coolest, LIGHT UP SIGNS - mtndewlord
Cool Green Lights. So many uses.
Also awesome. osed to seel best windows. kinda radioactive
Oxygens very cool. But not as cool as liquid oxygen.
Isn't really 'cool' but hey, we do breathe it.
It killed Marie Curie. Youchie.
It turns green
And the award for most stable isotopes goes to tin
*iodine - bstrz04
Another Alkali Metal!
Is also cool!
It can form amazing superatoms!
