MY BABY’S PERSONALITY
• Baby lithium has a silvery color that lets him shine
like a diamond. He isn’t very dense at 0.53
g/cm³. Don’t get him mad because his boiling
point is 1347º C or 2456ºF. He might melt on you
if you take his ice cream at 180°C or 356 °F.
But overall he’s a great baby with a wonderful
cubic crystal structure.
