–        Beryllium is atomic number 4 on Periodic Table of Elements. Steel grey, strong, alkaline, lightweight, non-magnetic hard metal that is brittle at room temperature. Found as a compound in the Earth’s crust, igneous (volcanic) rock, soil, atmosphere, water; and gemstones such as the beryls aquamarine, emerald, chrysoberyl and morganite. When added to metal products improves them because it does not oxidise easily, resistant to certain acids, makes it stronger/ harder/ resist sparking, has high thermal conductivity and resistance (important for nuclear applications), adds flexibility along with stiffness, sound conductor, transparent to most wavelengths of x-rays and gamma rays. Used in radar systems, cell phones, cameras, satellites, specialized tools, aerospace and aircraft components (gears, cogs, structure) , x-ray equipment, components used to make particle accelerators, mirrors for technical applications, nuclear weapons, laser holders (surgery for example), fluorescent lights (old use). Incredibly important element for military use. Dangerous to inhale or ingest, causes systemic poisoning and berylliosis (occupational lung disease) in susceptible individuals. Very small amounts are normally found in the human body, but it is considered dangerously toxic and cannot be removed from the body once it accumulates via over-exposure. The name Beryllium has many ancient roots in different languages. Its salts have a sweet taste and was called ‘glucinium’ the Greek word for sweet at one time. Egyptians used it as a gemstone – some of the oldest emerald mines were developed by the Romans in Egypt around 2,000 years ago. Current major producers are the United States, China and Kazakhstan. James Chadwick used it to discover Neutrons in 1932
