INTEREST CHECK FOR GMK MERCURY, A set inspired by the element Mercury! INTEREST FORM
If you have some time, and are interested in this set. I would appreciate if you could fill out this interest check form!

I. MERCURY EXPLAINED

Mercury is an element with the symbol Hg on the periodic table. Mercury is commonly known as quicksilver and the reason why the symbol is Hg is because it was once called hydrargyrum. Mercury is the only known metallic element to be in a liquid state at standard atmospheric conditions. Mercury occurs naturally throughout the world mostly as cinnabar (mercury sulfide). Vermilion is a pigment created from grinding natural cinnabar or synthetic mercury sulfide.

Mercury is commonly known to be used in thermometers and barometers. These devices are used to tell differences in the atmosphere, and are used by weather forecasters and scientists alike. Mercury is also used in amalgam (mercury and metal alloy) in dental restoration.

Poisoning due to Mercury is a result from exposure to water-soluble forms such as mercury chloride or methylmercury, through inhalation of the vapors or ingestion.

Mercury is one of my favorite elements and is the inspiration for this set!

II. COLORS

  • PANTONE 428C (GREY)
  • GMK WS2 (WHITE)
  • GMK N9 (DARK GREY)

     For the colors, I wanted to go with something that reflects mercury due to its silvery shiny nature. I also may change the accents depending to either red (to represent cinnabar) or a different white/grey. I chose to go with a bluish grey for the alphas and darker greys for the mods.

OTHER POSSIBLE ACCENT COLORS

III. KITS

Compatibility for full size, 1800, TKL, 75%, 65%, and 60%, 3 keys for 40%, an extra "B" for Alice layouts and support for F13 boards.

Spacebar kit includes support for Alice layouts and accents and a 6u centered stem for HHKB.

R1 Periodic Symbol | Biohazard Symbol | Skull & Crossbones
R2 Flask | Rhombohedron/Altimeter
R3 Flask | Alchemical Symbol | Thermometer Scale
R4 Periodic Symbol | Rhombohedron

All novelties should be to GMK standards (0.38 fine line width)
however they may have me change them during quoting so no grantees that these will be final.

Novelties Explained

  • Periodic Symbol : This is the symbol that can be found on the periodic table that represents the element Mercury, its molar mass, and atomic mass.
  • Conical / Erlenmeyer  Flask : A common flask used in chemistry for experiments that can be used to heat or boil liquids, it is also used in titration.
  • Rhombohedron : This is the symbol used to represent the crystal structure of the element Mercury.
  • Altimeter : Although modern altimeters use what is known as an aneroid, Mercury was used in the basis and invention of barometers to sense pressure changes in the environment.
  • At higher altitude pressure decreases, and thus a change in the environment causes the aneroid to sense the altitude.
  • Alchemical Symbol : This was the symbol used to represent Hydrargyrum (Mercury) in alchemy. It is also the astrological symbol for the planet Mercury.
  • Thermometer Scale : Mercury is used in thermometers, however thermometers that contain a red liquid is alcohol to which red coloring has been added.
