Caption: Mercury-gold amalgam formation. Time-lapse footage of gold leaf forming an alloy with drops of mercury, creating what is known as an amalgam. The gold leaf is thin, with a large surface area, and under the right circumstances is rapidly absorbed by the liquid mercury. The resulting alloy is similar to those used in some dental fillings.
