Periodically Speaking

I am periodically the number 79. They once tried to make me from 29. If you add to me 80, I will appear to be 47 temporarily. What am I?

    Gold…on the periodic table.

  • Dude

    You’re right, Geoff.

    Gold. On the periodic table of elements, Gold is represented by the number 79. Long ago, alchemists tried making Gold out of copper (number 29). If mercury (number 80) comes into contact with Gold, it will appear to be silver (number 47) for a while.
