Platinum

As one of the rarest metals in the world, platinum is used in jewellery, laboratory equipment, electrical contacts, dentistry, and automotive emissions control devices.

Platinum has a high resistance to chemical attack, stable electric properties, and exceptional high-temperature characteristics.

This uncommon metal is acquired through a process where rock is crushed, made into a slurry, and then mixed with a detergent containing 'collector' molecules. The grains of the metal mineral are then separated from the rest of the mixture by blowing air through the mixture.
