Mercury ("liquid silver," Hg, element 80) and bromine (Br, element 35) are liquid at room temperature, 68° to 70° Fahrenheit (200 to 250 Celsius). Gallium (Ga, element 31), with a melting point of 85.60 Fahrenheit (29.80 Celsius), and cesium (Cs, element 55), with a melting point of 830 Fahrenheit (28.40 Celsius), are liquids at slightly above room temperature.
