Gold’s atomic number is 79, and its symbol is Au. Gold has symbolized wealth from ancient Egypt to the present. It formed the burial mask of Tutankhamen. Gold is indestructible, and it doesn’t rust. The metal can be neglected for years and be restored beautifully. Its durability and malleability make it the perfect metal for jewelry as well as dental crowns. Gold remains the standard for assessing wealth.
Palladium has an atomic number of 46, and its symbol is Pd. Its primary use is in catalytic converters, although it is used in dental fillings and crowns. The silvery, white metal resists corrosion and is often found in laptops and mobile phones. It is frequently used to produce chemical reactions as it is an excellent catalyst. It is the “white” in “white gold.”
The metal was first isolated in 1803 and is considered the rarest metal on earth, making it one of the most expensive. It is found in the United States, Canada, South Africa, and Russia. Given its limited availability, refining palladium is the best method to ensure its sustainability
Platinum is the so-called “low-cost” alternative to palladium, ranking third in price per troy ounce. Its atomic number is 78 and its symbol is Pt. It is slightly less durable than palladium, but like palladium, it does not corrode. Platinum is more malleable, making it the preferred metal for jewelry and some dental restorative products.
