group metals,
although it is less dense and will melt at a lower temperature. As a noble metal,
palladium - chemical symbol Pd - is resistant to corrosion, making it an excellent store of wealth in
the form of palladium bars.

This demand source has risen significantly in the past decade, and has helped to push palladium up to
the most expensive of the four main precious metals. Furthermore it is used in jewellery, both in the
form of palladium jewellery and in the formation of the gold allow known as white gold.
