beryllium offers us four similar funnels and a central globe, and the proto-elements consist of these five bodies, set free.
Random samplings from various parts of the area show that the ash consists of magnesium, lithium, and beryllium carbonates.
It is the machine that is not of iron and beryllium and crystal, but of pure, living force.
That was beryllium steel, the alloy from which the barriers at the terminals of the surta mine were fashioned.
beryllium is estimated quantitatively by precipitation with ammonia, and ignition to oxide.
The mantel sank to ground level and the stereo swung outward, bringing into view a shining cubical locker of beryllium steel.
beryllium had been taken, but whether there was any significance in the thefts or not, no one knew.
Beryl (emerald), connellite, zinc, magnesium and beryllium crystallize in this class.
That is, it is a compound in which oxide of silicon is united with the oxides of aluminum and of beryllium.
This mineral contains the metals aluminum and beryllium combined with the non-metal oxygen.
metallic element, 1863, so called because it figures in the composition of the pale green precious stone beryl and was identified in emerald (green beryl) in 1797 by French chemist Louis Nicolas Vauquelin (1763-1829) and first isolated in 1828. At first and through 19c. also sometimes called glucinum or glucinium.
beryllium be·ryl·li·um (bə-rĭl'ē-əm)
A lightweight, corrosion-resistant metallic element used as an aerospace structural material, as a moderator and reflector in nuclear reactors, and in a copper alloy for springs and electrical contacts. Atomic number 4; atomic weight 9.0122; melting point 1,278°C; boiling point 2,471°C; specific gravity 1.848; valence 2.
A hard, lightweight, steel-gray metallic element of the alkaline-earth group, found in various minerals, especially beryl. It has a high melting point and is corrosion-resistant. Beryllium is used to make sturdy, lightweight alloys and aerospace structural materials. It is also used as a neutron moderator in nuclear reactors. Atomic number 4; atomic weight 9.0122; melting point 1,278°C; boiling point 2,970°C; specific gravity 1.848; valence 2. See Periodic Table.
