055 Caesium

The alkali metal caesium, which becomes liquid if warmed in the hand, is one of the most reactive elements and explodes violently on contact with water. Here the sample is safely contained in a solid block of clear acrylic, which allows you to appreciate caesium’s beautiful pale golden colour.
