It's oxide is incredibly toxic while the metal itself isn't. Iridium is a hard, silvery metal that's almost as unreactive as gold. It's salts are very colorful and it can be used with Osmium to produce fountain pen tips and compass points. It's best used in spark plugs due to it's high melting point but low reactivity. Platinum is a shiny silvery-white metal that has a similar unreactivity as gold. It's used in jewelery but also in cars as it can reduce up to 50% of emissions. It can also be found in computer hard discs and chemotherapy drugs. Gold is a shiny yellow metal that is chemically unreactive, although it will dissolve in aqua regia. It's used in jewelery, coinage, and protecting copper coponents. The more gold is in a alloy, the higher it's "carat" number. Mercury is a silvery, liquid metal that is heavy and toxic. Due to this, a lot of it's uses in batteries, catalysts, and lights are being phased out. It amalgamates well with gold.

It's Earth's primary source of background radiation. Fancium is a intensely radioactive metal that really doesn't have a lot of use due to it's extremely short life-span of 22 minutes. Due to this, it's not even really used in research and many of it's proposed uses are better served by other elements. Radium is a soft, shiny and silvery radioactive metal that's used to treat prostate cancer and bone cancer due to it being in the same group as calcium. It also used to be used in luminous paint, but you can guess why it's no longer used for that purpose! Actinium is a soft, silvery-white metal that glows blue in the dark. It's a great source for alpha rays which can be used to treat cancer, although it rarely sees use outside of research. It's also speculated to be have been used in Russian assassin work.

Californium is a radioactive metal and is a very strong neutron emitter. It is used in portable metal detectors for identifying gold and silver ores. It can also be used to identify water and oil layers in oil wells and to detect metal fatigue and stress in aeroplanes. Einsteinium is a radioactive metal, of which only a few milligrams are made each year. It was found in the nuclear explosion of Nagasaki and was kept a secret for years until it was proposed that it would be named after Einstein. It's the child of the bomb- and one that Einstein may not apperciate, ironically. Fermium is a radioactive metal obtained only in microgram quantities. It's one of the heaviest elements currently that doesn't come from a particle accelerator. It's considered a sneaky element as it's found in really small doses in nuclear waste despite it's importance as the 100th element.
