High strength magnets are one of the key uses of cobalt. Its salts are used as the main drier in alkyd paints and varnishes and inks. It also enables a deep blue color to be imparted to glass and ceramics. It is also used as an alloying element in certain metals including steels.

i dont know exactly but it could be used in rings and stuff

Cobalt (I) chloride = Cobalt monochloride = CoCl Cobalt (II) chloride = Cobalt dichloride = CoCl2 Cobalt (III) chloride = Cobalt trichloride = CoCl3

Yes. Cobalt (Co) can be reacted with most elements. Here are a few reactions:Cobalt + Oxygen --> Cobalt OxideCobalt + Sulphur --> Cobalt SulphateCobalt + Iodine --> Cobalt IodideCobalt + Chlorine --> Cobalt Chloride

Cobalt (I) chloride = Cobalt monochloride = CoCl Cobalt (II) chloride = Cobalt dichloride = CoCl2 Cobalt (III) chloride = Cobalt trichloride = CoCl3

It attracts iron, nickel, cobalt and can also attract or repel another magnet.
