Metal

A metal (from Greek `μέταλλον` – métallon, `mine, quarry, metal`) is a material (an element, compound, or alloy) that is typically hard, opaque, shiny, and has good electrical and thermal conductivity. Metals are generally malleable — that is, they can be hammered or pressed permanently out of shape without breaking or cracking
