Where did that piece of verse come from?

Peter van der Krogt posted details of J. Carrington Sellars Chemistianity on the web. Realizing that I was building a new look for MacOSX that echoed Apple’s old Platinum, I started looking around the web for information about metals that were similar to Platinum. When I reached Peter’s site, this is what I found:

IRIDIUM, Platinum’s twin companion
And to which it has a great resemblance,
Is a white and brittle metal that fuses
With difficulty in the Compound Blowpipe flame.

It was so exactly what I was looking for, that I had to use it. Thank you so much Peter van der Krogt!
