tin

Definition

Tin looks silvery-white and is very malleable- that is, easily worked with. It is also very ductile and crystalline. It resists corrosion and it is often used to coat other metals or is combined with them to form rust-resistant alloys.

Tin is a strange metal due to its working characteristics. Tinsmiths, a specialized variety of blacksmiths, like the metal because it is very malleable at normal temperatures. When heated, however, it becomes very brittle.

Tin is one of the main components in the alloy bronze.

Alchemists call it stannum. They claim this metal has a life force all of its own since when a pure bar of it is broken, it cries out in pain.
