Tellurium

Source: Used in ceramics, it also forms alloys with many compounds that increase strength and electrical resistance. It is found in Blu Ray discs and semiconductors.

Summary: Tellurium is element 52 on the periodic table. It occurs naturally in rocks and minerals in very trace amounts. It has a density of 6.232 g/mL. Tellurium is used in alloys with copper and steel for ease of machining purposes, and it forms strong alloys with lead that increase resistance to corrosion. It is used in many other alloys that may be used there electrical resistance properties. It may be used in ceramics, colored glass, and for adding colors to kitchenware and appliances. Tellurium alloys are also used in solar cells and Blu Ray discs.
