10 Common Precious Metals:
This extremely rare metal is commonly used for its reflective properties and its high melting point. Also, known for its ability not to corrode.
Most known for jewelry, this metal is not only dense but malleable. Along with its ability not to corrode and withstand great quantities of hydrogen, allow this metal to be used not only for jewelry but also dentistry, aeronautics and numerous other industries.
The most famous precious metal is not only used in the jewelry but also known for several other industries such as electronics due to its conductivity.
Ruthenium is a member of the platinum metal. This metal is known for abilities to withstand outside elements along with its hardness. This metal is commonly combined with platinum to create substances that are harder and more impermeable.
This metal is also a member of the platinum metal. Produced from platinum ore as a byproduct of nickel mining, this rare metal is known for its really high melting point and being one of the densest elements in the world.
This metal is similar in regards to iridium in that it shares the same characteristics as a really high melting point and being one of the densest elements in the world.
For its ability to absorb hydrogen at room temperature and stay stable at high temperatures, palladium is used frequently in catalytic converters, used to create white gold, and helps with electronic plating.
With the third highest melting point and being one of the densest metals, rhenium is used is used for many reasons. Turbine engines and electronic contact points are just a couple of the reasons.
Most known for its jewelry, this element has the best electrical and thermal conductivity of all the metals.
This metal is produced from zinc ore processing and can be used for corrosion-resistance, semiconductors, and alloys for flat panel devices.
