Thallium, a grayish-white metal similar to tin in appearance, was discovered spectroscopically in Like lead, it is heavy yet soft, and can be cut easily with a knife. When exposed to air, thallium’s luster quickly tarnishes to a blue-gray color owing to the formation of a film of thallium oxide. Its concentration in Earth’s crust is estimated at parts per million; mostly it is. The major environmental releases of thallium are emissions and waste materials from the combustion of fossil fuels, ferrous and nonferrous smelting, metal processing, and cement production. No significant releases are expected from industries using thallium (Schoer ; ATSDR ). Traces of thallium in the range of – µgL
