Want to buy a seatpost that has as one of its color options "Borinium." I know it's a metal but what
color is it?

I haven't heard of a metal called Borinium and couldn't find a definition in the Dictionary. Where
did the reference come from? Keith

That is not only not a metal, that's not even an element. Boron is a semi-conductor, apparently
somewhat similar in properties to silicon, and bromine is a brown, liquid element (at least at STP,
my recollection is that it verges on being a gas in most real-world room temperatures).

There's also Bohrium, colour listed as "unknown, but probably metallic and silvery white or grey in
appearance" according to this site:

"Unknown" because it has a very short half-life, and has never been made in quantities large enough
to be seen normally.

Same color as "marketeerium," a little lighter than "unobtanium."

It's a dark grey colour. I guess X-lite thought it sounded good. There's a picture of a Boronium
seat clamp here:

It's ever so slightly less silvery than Oakley's Unobtanium
