It's rose's metal

Good find. Good detective work.
Now... What to do with it.

thanks. Teamwork has great power. To tell you the truth I do not know what I will use it for. I am still learning about its properties and uses (sure not as a solder:D). I don't know why, but i don't have Bismuth, Perhaps I will separate it from alloy.

If you can get a good sphere out of the sample you might get a more accurate volume measurement by measuring its diameter. This must certainly be a bismuth alloy. Maybe Rose's metal could be told from Wood's metal by measuring the melting point?

I find the volume easier, a flask, water and burette are only needed. It does not matter what shape the metal will have.

You can use it for castings where you want to remove the metal before pouring the final metal. It's kind of like lost wax casting but you can use metal instead. Create the shape you want with the woods/roses metal, make a casting form, heat & allow metal to drain out and then pour with the final metal you want the part made out of.

I'd be interested in how hard it is. This might be very interesting to use with a CNC router (especially one designed for wood/plastic) if the metal is soft enough. You could create parts the size/shape you need and then cast them like I said above.

Interesting idea, worth to try. Its hard alloy. But i think molten alloy will stay on sand wall in inside and wax not.

build a nanobot. autoreplicative, getting atoms separately from soil of Gold, Platinium, Rhodium... and amass a fortune.

it's a matter of getting on with it.

Or maybe go easier and build a thermometer. Or prank the hell out of someone by melting it and telling them that it is mercury :P

I found three more alloys, i classified all of them. First is Devarda's alloy, second one is steel, why it was in lab? Any ideas? Third is magnetic powder (which type I don't know), but maybe it contains much iron oxide, but it is very weak magnetic powder, does anyone have this?

It is very interesting that you have Rose's metal.

Just today, I was reading a famous book that ChemTalk purchased, we have an original 1933 copy, called the chemical formulary book. It is a chemical "recipe" book, that teaches you how to make, well, anything. One chapter was on alloys, and I was reading about alloys with low melting points, including Rose's metal.

There are many alloys that are liquid at room temperature, we will try to make some of them soon.

The black stuff I'm guessing is powdered magnitite (Fe3O4) or it could be a powdered ferrite with carbon mixed in.

if the black powder weakly magnetic and is a iron oxide probably FeO .try heating it to 500C in air, if it get more magnetic when cools down while increase mass it is FeO.also try to dissolve in HCl.

Black powder is magnetic powder for fingerprint.
