The Mercury ball is an artifact found in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha.

Dubbed the Mercury Ball, it got its name from the both the element and planet. The emanating color is akin to the searing heat of Mercury and the inner layer of liquid is, surprisingly, a heavier and more toxic variant of the element mercury, unique to the Zone.
