3D3DSilicone spatula.
This sample is here only to make the point that silicone is not silicon. Silicon is a brittle, semi-metallic element, silicone is a soft rubbery chemical compound (one of a family of polysiloxanes depending on the exact type of silicone). Silicone rubber does contain a fair bit of silicon (35% or less depending on the type) but it is incorporated into a chemical structure that completely changes its characteristics compared to its pure elemental form.
