Platinum is one of the rarest and most expensive precious metals on earth. In its natural form, it is fairly impure as it contains small amounts of other elements and is often found in jewellery. However, its primary use is in catalytic converters for cars, buses and trucks. It is also used for making optical fibres and LCDs, spark plugs, pacemakers, turbine blades and dental fillings, among other things. This element is commonly found in alluvial deposits, and the majority of commercially produced platinum originates from South Africa.
