What happening with a Hg (or any other conduct metal atom) if it is compressed by an extremely strong magnetic fields from XYZ (atom at zero coordinate) and an infinite electrical current is circulating from one of axis( example ,-X and +X ) at the same time?

Liquids and solids resist compression; but conductivity can change if the material phase changes.

Here is an example for an amorphous semiconductor:

And this study on metals as thermal conductors:
