100g from larger lot.
An example of the element Gallium

Gallium 100g from larger lot
100g from larger lot.
I purchased 500g of gallium for use in the series of museum displays I am helping build with Max Whitby of The Red Green and Blue Company: This 100g vial full was the tax I extract on all element samples that pass through my hands. I plan to use some of it to make a room-temperature liquid gallium-indium alloy.
To extract this quantity from the larger vial full, I simply placed the big vial in a cup of hot water for a few minutes, then poured the liquid metal into the glass vial sitting on a balance, pouring until the balance read 100g more than the tare amount. The melting point of gallium is rather low, you see.
