Quicksilver is better known by its metallurgic name, mercury. This silvery liquid metal is one of only two elements that remain in a liquid form for the majority of its existence. Mercury is fascinating. It weighs air, reflects images, measures temperature, and is extremely deadly. Only the most careful handling of this metal should ever be done. But it is also extremely beautiful. Beautiful and deadly. Many things are.
