Gold nanoparticles appear red (as well as orange, purple or green, depending on the size or shape of the particle) and melt at much lower temperatures than bulk gold, like that used in jewelry

Aluminum nanoparticles spontaneously combust (increased reactivity), but an aluminum can of soda doesn窶冲 react with the air around it
