One of the rarest chemical elements on Earth and more expensive than gold, platinum is a silvery-white, shiny transition metal. It is malleable and ductile – more ductile than any other metal – and has a high melting point.
Platinum occurs in some nickel and copper ores as well as in native deposits. It is used in catalytic converters, laboratory equipment, electrical contacts and electrodes, thermometers, dentistry equipment, and jewellery.
