Gallium is an element that is widely known for melting at just above room temperature, leading to the fact that it will slowly melt in your hand. Its symbol on the periodic table is Ga and its icon is a rooster, one of the many known icon puns.[eedit | eedit soorce]

It is a solid below or at room temperature, and it was discovered in 1875 by Paul-Emile Lecoq de Boisbaudran. It is a silvery-white color when it is pure, and is so soft it can be cut by a knife.[eedit | eedit soorce]

Gallium is reactive with acids and alkalis. It is in group 13, or the boron group with boron, aluminium, indium, thallium, and maybe the newly discovered ununtrium.[eedit | eedit soorce]
