*** This is a sample image - the elements are painted to order.  The painting you receive will have slight variations.

The name comes from the Greek word thallos, meaning “green shoot or twig” in reference to the pure green color it changes a flame into.  It is a soft gray metal that creates highly toxic compounds.  In the past it was used in rat poisons and insecticides (and as a murder weapon) but has been prohibited in the US due to safety concerns.
