What is Platinum?

Platinum is one of the three precious metals – the others being gold and silver. It is silvery grey, grey-white or white in colour.

It forms in igneous rock as ores – in which the platinum grains are too minute to  be seen by the naked eye. It is mainly found in South Africa, Canada and Alaska.

It is the rarest of the metals, found in few places.

It is hypo-allergenic and so suitable for sensitive skin.
