English: A tiny drop of galinstan (from a broken "mercury free" thermometer) easily wetting a 2" glass disk (protective goggle lens) at room temperature with a cotton swab, making a rough mirror. Note that the small puddle at the middle bottom is actually much more galinstan than was used to make the large (but very thin) smudge above it. Ruler shows inches.
Deutsch: Ein kleiner Tropfen Galinstan aus einem zerbrochenen quecksilberfreien Thermometer, auf einem 5 cm großen Uhrglas, das er bei Zimmertemperatur benetzt und dabei eine matt spiegelnde Fläche erzeugt. Bemerkenswert ist, dass die kleine Anhäufung in der Mitte des Uhrglases viel mehr Galinstan enthält als darüber mit dem Wattestäbchen verteilt wurde. Auf dem Lineal sind Zolleinheiten markiert.
