Metals are materials that have a lustrous appearance when freshly produced, polished, or shattered, and carry electricity and heat reasonably well. Metals are either malleable or ductile (they may be hammered into thin sheets) (can be drawn into wires).
  • Steel
  • Iron (Wrought or Cast)
  • Aluminum
  • Magnesium
  • Copper
