Ni is similar to cobalt and iron in its properties. Nickel is resistant to weather, soil and some acids, as it is protected by a tough surface oxide film. But this metal is readily soluble in nitric acid. Ni(NO3)2 nitrate turns solution green. The greatest practical value has sulfur-nickel vitriol NiSO4, which forms emerald-green beautiful crystals. When heated to 230 °C, the crystals lose water and turn a grayish-yellow color.
