Nickel

Nickel

Nickel is a typical coinage metal: All around the world it is used to make coins. The 5-Cent Piece is named after it. The origin of the name comes from a mischievous sprite of German mythology, Nickel. In medieval times, miners believed that the copper ore was beset by these spirits.

 

Nick the monster is a silent mining gnome who likes to hide. Only with his buddy Cobald he likes to go out and play pranks on others.

Iron

Ferro
Ferro

Iron is a true all-rounder with downright proverbial meaning (just how many figues of speech with iron are there?). In ancient history man made iron tools as well as weapons. For this reason it has been associated with Mars, the god of war. As a matter of fact, the planet Mars contains a lot of iron. This explains its reddish colour – just like our blood, which also contains iron.

Ferro is the iron knight, a lovable Macho, who sometimes overshoots the mark. Ironically he doesn’t understand irony.

Argon

18
Argo
Argon

Argon is a noble gas. That means, it doesn’t form any compounds with other elements. Air naturally contains about 1% of argon. A scientist once calculated, that with every breath you breathe a few argon-atoms, that any person in the world has already inhaled before – alive or dead.

 

Argo the monster really lives up to his name: It means inert. So he likes to float lazyly around and meditate the whole day. Every once in a while he utters some very wise words.

Chlorine

17
Chlorux
Chlor

Chlorine is an element that is dangerous and useful at the same time. In its pure form it is poisonous and can be used as a disinfectant (for swimming pools for example) or as bleach. Only in concunction with sodium it becomes the harmless and essential table salt.

 

Chlorux is a lurking hunter, who silently snatches his prey like an insect. Only Natri can bring him to terms.

Aluminium

Alu
Aluminium

Aluminium is a light, soft metal. It serves many purposes, from packaging to airplanes. It is very easy to recycle, too.

 

Alu is the sporting ace among the Elemonsters. It is always on the run and busy doing something.

Sodium

11
Natrio
Sodium

Sodium is quite agressive. It reacts vigorously with water. Only if bonded with chlorine it becomes the harmless table salt. Street lamps that glow yellowish-orange usually contain sodium vapor.

 

Natrio the monster is a kind of vegetarian predator. It can run very fast and use its trunk like a catapult.

Lithium

Lithium
Lithium

Lithium is the lightest metal. It is so light, it would float on water – if only it wouldn’t react so heavily with it. But Lithium can do much more: It works as a medicine against depression and can be found in many batteries.

 

Lithi the monster is a light-footed little fella, always playful and in a good mood. With its long thin legs it looks like a water strider.

Helium

2
Heli

Everybody knows helium from balloons. When inhaled it turns your voice into a squeaky high-pitched Mickey Mouse voice. It is completely harmless since the noble gas reacts with nothing and nobody. There is only verry little helium on earth but even the more in the sun.

 

Heli the monster is a dremy little dandelion clock. Oblivious to our every-day life it floats away and thinks about nothing...
