What is Chromium?
Chromium is a hard metal. Trivalent chromium is required in trace amounts for sugar metabolism in humans.
Since its discovery in 1974, a multitude of weapons found in the late 3rd century BC Qin Dynasty burial pits of the Terracotta Army near Xi'an, China have been analyzed by archaeologists. Remarkably, after more than 2,000 years, the ancient bronze tips of crossbow bolts found at the site showed no sign of corrosion over time, the reason being that the Qin era Chinese had coated the bronze in chromium.
