Platinum is similar in appearance to silver with a silver-white coloration. In fact, its name is derived from the Spanish term “platino,” which stands for “little silver” when translated into English. The first reference to platinum in European cultures came in the 16th century, but it was not investigated as a precious metal by scientists until 1748 when a report on its Colombian origin emerged.
Today, platinum’s status as the least reactive metal with high resistance to corrosion makes it a popular application in various industries. One of the most popular is the automotive industry, which uses platinum in catalytic converters that help convert harmful emissions from engines into safer exhaust. It is also used in laboratory equipment, dentistry tools, and jewelry.
