Hello, I'm Aluminum. I was named by Dave Humphry, discovered by Hans Christian Ørsted in the year of 1825, and I am the most abundant metal on Earth. My name comes from to he Latin word "alumen", which means bitter taste. I am pretty popular, I was once called "The Metal of Kings" because I was more expensive to produce than gold, until the Hall-Heroult process was discovered. I'm also mysterious, a piece of jewlery in the tomb of a 3rd century Chinese General Chou-Chu has been found to contain 85% of Me. But historians don't know how I was produced, considering it was the 3rd century! I have lots of friends! But there is one element that just cant stand me, Mercury! He says if I come in contact with him he'll eat me, if you watch the video you'll see what will happen. I have 22 known isotopes, my biggest is Al42 and my smallest is Al21.
My symbol is Al, my atomic number is 13 and my atomic mass is 27. My melting point is 660.3 and my boiling point is 2,519. And my normal phase is solid.
