Word Description
Samarium [Sm] - A hard, silvery element which oxidizes easily when exposed to air. This material has a high temperature threshold, and is used in high grade rare earth magnets.
Silver [Ag] - A chemical element with high thermal and electrical conductivity. It is a ductile metal, often used as a conductor or a constituent of various metal alloys. This material is non-magnetic.
Strontium [Sr] - A chemical element with high chemical reactivity. It is a soft, silver-white alkaline metal used in the production of Ferrite magnets, which gives it a higher rate of magnetic coercivity.
