Germanium is named after Germany and francium after France but indium is not named after India. The name was instead inspired from spectroscopy where its discoverer analyzed a sample containing this metal gave off an indigo glow, a beautiful color halfway between blue and purple.
Indium is quite rare and expensive and is unusual for being so soft that you can knead it with your fingers!
These small "sputters" were created as the molten metal dropped and cooled while still in the air preserving the tear drop shape. They are stored in gel and will slowly change positions when the cube is repositioned.
