Platinum with Eric Gee
As PLatinum i have 78 electrons in my Neutral form. my electron configuration is [Xe].4f14.5d9.6s1. I have 1 valence elctron so that when i become an ion i like to lose that transfer that electron and become a cation.
I Am Platinum, Pt and my Atomic Number is 78 with an Atomic Mass of 195.084 g/mol. I am one of the few Nobel Metals in the Transition Metals. At room temperature i appear as a solid but i become a liquid at 2041.4 K
(1768.3°C, 3214.9°F) and a gas at 4098 K
(3825 °C, 6917 °F). My density is 21.45 g·cm−3. I appear typically in a white or greyish shade.

I am a pretty elusive metal. I do not occur in the human body, I am only found at 5 parts per billion in the whole world. I am found scarcly through several parts of the world including South Africa, Columbia, Ontario, the Ural Mountains and in certain western American states.
I was one of the few elements discovered long ago and this was my alchemic symbol.
Now most people remember me because i form a lot of the metal used in many everyday items and jewelry. I bling people out. YEAH!
(With My Friends!)
I was used in Pre-Columbian times by the Native Americans. The first European refrence of me was made by Italian humanist Julius Caesar Scaliger in 1557 in Central American mines between Panama and Mexico.
