Palladium is a metal very similar in appearance to platinum. This should be no surprise when you learn that palladium is part of the platinum precious metals group along with platinum, rhodium, ruthenium, iridium, and osmium. Palladium shares many chemical properties with each of these metals, but is the least dense and has the lowest melting point of all metals from the group.
