There are many different types of metals, regarded as commodities in many cases because of how they are greatly sought after. Examples of some of the most commonly-used metals in today’s society include aluminium, gold and silver, and the market price for all of these metals is eagerly followed by speculators. Other metals are also widely used, including iron and magnesium, with many of the leading steel manufacturers in the world running businesses that are worth billions of pounds.

If you’re looking to differentiate between metals, there are a number of factors that can be used. These include how the metal sparks, the overall appearance of the substance, whether it’s easy to chip, magnetic, and what happens once the metal is torched. If you’re looking to compare all of the main types of metals based on these qualities, there’s no doubt that this website is the best place to visit for more information: craftside.typepad.com/.a/6a00e55007f59388340120a8bd212f970b- As you can imagine, all of these variables can be deciding factors when you are deciding what metal to use for kitchen appliances and other projects. In addition, the cost price for a ton of each of these metals can fluctuate greatly.

When you select one type of metal, such as steel, it is also naive to assume that this is it. Do bear in mind that there are countless variations within this group - such as galvanized and stainless steel.  The price you would pay for both types is considerably different, so do bear this in mind as you prepare to make a purchase.

There are many metals like sodium, potassium, iron, zinc, copper, magnesium etc. I am giving you a link to periodic table from where you can find name and symbols of all metals. At the end of the table, key is given which will guide you for the identification of the metals by color. So, visit periodic table.
