Huge pile of bumpers()
An example of the element Chromium

Sample Image
Chromium Huge pile of bumpers
Huge pile of bumpers. (External Sample)
The local bumper factory in my town used to send their mistakes to Macros Scrap Metal. It must have been a really bad day at the factory to create this huge pile of chrome-plated car and truck bumpers. You cannot begin to imagine how dazzlingly bright this pile was in the blazing sun on a cold winter's day. Sadly, Macro's contract with the factory requires them to destroy all the bumpers, so I was not able to take home a sample.
As is typical of chrome plated objects, nearly all the metal you see in this picture is chromium, yet chromium represents only a minuscule fraction of the total weight of the objects, because it is nothing but a thin plating on the outside.
