Metals are material, element, compound, or alloy that is hard, opaque, shiny and has good electrical and thermal conductivity, and is malleable. They can be hammered or cast into various shapes.  Soft metals like gold and silver have been used longer, with metals such as copper, bronze, and iron coming later.  Alloys are the creation of a new material from the combination of two or more elements in a certain proportion.  Most of the time it is hard to tell the alloys apart from original elements, like in the case of copper.  This is why they are grouped together below.  Metals are usually used for tools, weapons, vessels, and statues.
