Interesting question. I suppose that Sodium Chloride is a solid substance in it's normal state, as mined in many parts of the world.(common table salt) Mercury is considered to be a metal, and conducts electricity extremely well. Perhaps that is what you were wondering. Perhaps you think it is NOT a metal. I think sodium conducts electricity and is used in Sodium Vapor lights which you often see in city streets. These are just my thoughts . See what others have to say.
