Caption: Light micrograph of a thin section of tantalum, a heavy, malleable, ductile, bluish transition metal (chemical symbol: Ta), found in the minerals columbite-tantalite and samarskite. It is widely used in the electronics industry in electrolytic capacitors, emitters and getters. It is also used for surgical implants, because it is tolerated by the body and does not react with bodily fluids. Strips and screws of tantalum are used for pinning broken bones & tantalum wire is used for surgical staples, sutures and reinforcements. Tantalum is the most resistant of all metals to atmospheric corrosion. Magnification: x250 at 6x4.5cm size.
