I was going to ask if your name was a spin off of eridium from Borderlands, then I read your comments and now I'm kinda disappointed. Also, I live in San Jose too.

Haven't played that game in forever, still have the first one in my collection. But nope. And I get all sorts of other ideas, like someone mentioned a Death Metal song. I was just into chemistry when I was little and the name sort of stuck.

Also, cool. What part of SJ?

what is iridium used for
tell me please
User avatar #5 to #4 - iridium (11/05/2013) [-]
Well, it's a verrrrry rare earth metal. In fact so rare, that most of it is impossibly deep underground (hypothesized to have sunk underneath the surface when the earth was still covered in molten material), although it is more abundant in meteorites. Because of its density, corrosion resistance, high durability from wear and high heat capacity it can be used for a good number of things en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iridium#Applications here's some examples . However, due to its rarity (it's 40 times rarer than gold), it's often either used in extremely small amounts with compounds or its used with very expensive machines. A very small amount of iridium (along with osmium) is used for compass bearings. There are also iridium crucibles which work extremely well in high heat.

i thought gold wasnt supposed to be rare, just very useful?
User avatar #7 to #6 - iridium (11/05/2013) [-]
Gold's not really that useful for all that many scientific things actually, partly because it's naturally brittle. It's just really ****** shiny and glistens. That said, it really isn't bad either. Seriously, you can eat gold leaf and it's pretty non toxic, though the only reason why I think anyone would do that would be to say "look at me I got so much expendible income I can afford to **** gold!"
User avatar #9 to #7 - adplum (11/05/2013) [-]
yeah, i know about that. They put it on really expensive ice cream at restaurants near my house, and isnt gold supposed to be worth a lot because of how malleable and unaffected by chemicals it is?
User avatar #8 to #7 - iridium (11/05/2013) [-]
That said, it is highly conductive and has some medical uses as well. And it can be stretched thin and it deflects ice and radition well, so it can be used for that. The vast majority of gold sales however is for jewelry.
User avatar #10 to #8 - adplum (11/05/2013) [-]
oh, yeah i can see that.
well thanks for the info, been trying to figure that out for a while

Usually I just delete comments because I change my mind about wanting them to be there.

It's not about thumbs either.
