That is probably because people tend to deposit native structures, and
not their heavy metal derivatives. If you look in the heavy metal
database (http://wwwbmcd.nist.gov:8080/bmcd/bmcd.html)
you can find a lot of examples, especially with mercury. Depends on what
you have in your buffers I guess....
