Very light, silver-coloured metal discovered in 1827. From the 1850s it was occsionally used for figurinesand plaques, and sometimes combined with gold for bracelets. Aluminium was back in fashion from the early 1920s onwards for ART DECO cocktail equipment, cigarette collectables such as ashtrays, and useful household articles such as jelly moulds â€¦...
In 2005, the People`s Republic of China was the top producer of aluminium with almost a one-fifth world share, followed by Russia, Canada, and the USA, reports the British Geological Survey.

Aluminium and its alloys are widely used for various applications including aircraft assemblies and engine parts. It is a silvery white reactive metal which is usually covered in oxide, making it inert to acids, but it is attacked by alkalies. It is extracted from the hydrated oxide, Bauxite, by electrolysis of the oxide dissolved in molten sodium ...Found on http://www.diracdelta.co.uk/science/source/a/l/aluminium/source.html

No-one knows exactly how aluminium compounds reduce underarm wetness. They may prevent sweating by clogging sweat ducts. But clogging leads to pressure from the sweat buildup inside the ducts, and it's thought that this may cause the sweat glands to stop secreting. A look at the incidence of breast cancer among 400 US women suggests it may be a com...Found on http://www.theorganicsalon.com/dictionary.php
This light, silvery, metal is relatively resistant to corrosion, except in salty environments. It is sometimes used to make gutters and downpipes. In sheet form it is occasionally used for ridging, but its lightness makes it vulnerable to high winds.
