Magnesium is the ninth most abundant element in the universe. It is the product of a supernova. Mg has the lowest melting point of the five alkaline earth metals at a temp of 650 °C or 1,202 °F and the lowest boiling at 1,091 ° C or 1,994 ° F. It has an auto ignition point of 473 ° C or 883 °F and burns at a temp of 3100 ° C or 5,610 ° F.
*Warning!!* Burning Magnesium will generate UV light that will cause permanent damage to the retinas of your eyes! Once ignited it can not be extinguished by conventional means! DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!! Dangerous injury or harm in the form of severe burns or blindness may occur. Again, PLEASE DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!!!
