Mercury is the only common metal that is liquid at room temperature.  It occurs either as native metal or in cinnabar, corderoite, livingstonite, and other minerals.  Mercury has uniform volumetric thermal expansion, good electrical conductivity, and easily forms amalgams with almost all common metals except iron.  Most mercury is used for the manufacture of industrial chemicals and for electrical and electronic applications.
