What is that dust stuff that forms on the top of liquid mercury?

    It is called “mercury dust”. From what I can find out, it seems to occur when mercury attaches to other little bits of things (often regular dust) in the air. It is very harmful to breathe, and often gets onto the clothing of people who work with mercury.
