I am working with a unknown white oxidizing powder that melts at around 500 degrees Fahrenheit. It turns my finger green when it comes into contact with my finger for a short while. It leaves a very soft almost slimy feeling even after washing it off with normal hand soap.
When melted it becomes a dark purple color And will turn into a solid very quickly when in contact with something cool. It has on the box it came in a diamond shaped yellow sign with the word OXIDIZER then the number 5.1 which means it is strongly corrosive.
It also seems to corrode rubies and sapphires when in this liquid/powder for about 40-45 minutes in 500 degrees Fahrenheit. So I would like to know if anybody has any idea what I am dealing with? Because the company that send this powder to my employer this powder doesn't seem so happy about giving up their secret and says it comes from the dead sea.
