Cobalt

Cobalt is a hard white metal, similar to nickel in appearance, but having a slight bluish cast. It is malleable, ductile and feebly magnetic, properties which it shares in common with nickel. It oxidizes very slowly in moist air, and is acted upon in the ordinary way by the common acids. Cobalt in thin films is said to have the property of absorbing hydrogen. In all its chemical properties, cobalt is closely related to nickel. In the metallic form, cobalt has not many uses, but its various chemical compounds, particularly the insoluble pigments which it gives rise to, are of considerable importance.
