Introduction

3 physical properties of cobalt are cobalt's melting point is 2723 F. Cobalt is a brittle hard metal. Cobalt alloys are strong but aren't used that much because they are very heavy. 3 chemical properties of cobalt. Cobalt cannot catch on fire except in powder form. Cobalt has the ability to react with most acids to produce hydrogen gas. The simplest ion that cobalt forms in solution is the pink hexaaquacobalt ion. Cobalt is found in the earths crust in a chemically bounded form. One of the greatest uses for this element is making super alloys to be used at high temperatures and forces. Cobalt compounds are used for colored glass, paints, and also rubbers. The most occurring isotope of cobalt is C 59. Some forms of cobalt produce radiation which sometime may become deadly.

Cobalt for sale!!

Why buy my cobalt? Because I have the finest cobalt on the planet Cobalt 59. It is strong hard and can be used for many different things. You could use it for industrial tools because of its heat resistance and its strength. Or you could make other things like Rubber or colored glass with it. Cobalt has a sleek silver color and even a cool pink color in powder form. If you bought my cobalt you could poor gasoline all over it and start a fire but it wouldn't ever catch on fire in its most common form. Or you could make a cool party trick and burn its powder form for a cool pink gas.
