Iodine sublimation. Solid iodine being heated in a laboratory beaker, with a watch-glass used to trap the resulting purple gas. Iodine at room temperature is a grey-black solid. Gentle heating below the melting point drives a solid-gas transition known as sublimation. Iodine, found in seaweed and sea water, is an essential part of the diet.
