–        Titanium is atomic number 22 on the Periodic Table of Elements. A lustrous, silvery transitional metal naturally found on Earth in compounds such as rocks, sediment, cooled lava and bodies of water. It is the 9th most abundant element in Earth’s crust. Highly resistant to: corrosion, shrinkage, heat, magnetism, electricity. It has a low weight/ high strength ratio and elastic properties that also make for a very unique metal. Used to make airplanes and space stations, eyeglasses, sports equipment, cosmetics, paints, food, body implants including piercings (excellent biocompatibility), construction (classified as an incombustible material) – along with many other specialized applications. It is a super-powered element being experimented on in current technical advances such as creating clean energy and biocompatible computerized sensor chips. Considered non-toxic to humans we contain a detectible amount in our bodies, but haven’t yet discovered its biological role even though it is found in every living thing. There are studies being done in regards to bowel irritation, especially in colitis sufferers – they are being told to avoid foods with titanium (added E171) such as marshmallows, gum, frosting, etc. Named after the powerful giant Greek God ‘Titans’ – the 6 sons and 6 daughters of the Gods Uranus/ Heaven and Gaea/ Earth. Gives the asterism to star sapphires and rubies. The Moon contains clusters of titanium rich rock, found in very high concentration in Supernovas (dying stars)
