Hg. Mercury in its elemental (pure) form, that is, as a metal; hence the synonym metallic mercury. A shiny, silver-gray metal that is a liquid at room temperature.
Elemental mercury has many uses and is for instance found in thermometers, barometers, dental amalgams, batteries, fluorescent lights and some electrical switches. It is rarely found in nature.
