Burning Magnesium produces a very bright reaction which liberates a substantial amount of heat energy, easily reaching temperatures of a few thousand degrees forming magnesium oxide (magnesia). The flame is very intense, do not look at it directly for more than a few seconds. For safety wear Ultraviolet Blocking UV Goggles.
Magnesium ribbon can be ignited using a simple butane lighter or Bunsen burner. Once ignited, the ribbon will burn slowly but steadily down the length of the strand, leaving a flaky, white, Magnesium Oxide residue behind. After ignition is begun, Magnesium ribbon is difficult to extinguish.
