Aluminum – One of the most common types of metals for being wearable and lightweight.
Brass – This is an example of an alloy metal as it is made up from copper and zinc.
Bronze- Another alloy metal made from copper and tin.
Chrome – This is a very shiny decorative metal, and is not easily corroded.
Copper – Another very commonly found metal, usually a red-ish brick colour. It is also used to make up an alloy formulas.
Foil – It is rolled into very, very thin sheets and aluminum foil is commonly found as a house-hold item.
Gold – Gold is usually a shiny yellow color and unlike aluminum it is very heavy just like its price. However it is one of the softest metals.
Iron – Iron is pretty much the biggest metal components on the Earth.
Lead – It is a soft and ductile metal.
Magnesium – This type of metal reacts highly in experimentation and a key part to everyday life.
Mercury – At room temperature this metal can still be a liquid without changing. It also does not react well with acidic.
Nickel – This is a component which can be used to make up stainless steel.
Pewter – This is also an alloy metal. It is usually used to make picture frames.
Platinum – This is known to be a very precious metal.
Quick Silver – The name for liquid Mercury.
Silver – A soft, reflective shiny metal.
Solder – This is an alloy metal combined of tin and lead.
Steel – Steel is another alloy which is a mixture of all different types of metals, mainly iron, carbon and chrome
Tarnish – This is a mixture made up of types of metals it is more a layer of a rusty, brown dull colour
Tin – Tin is mainly used as part of an alloy but is in fact one of the oldest metals known to man.
Titanium – This type of metal is a dark silver colour and is also one of the strongest in comparison to a lot of other metals. It is used mainly to make strong alloys.
Zinc – Zinc is a very protective type of metal and again is used to make a lot of strong alloys. It won’t let another metal rust when mixed together until all the zinc is gone.
