Element Description

The least reactive of the alkali metals, lithium is silvery-white, turning yellowish when exposed to moist air. It does not occur free in nature, but is combined in most igneous rocks and in many mineral springs. Lithium has the highest specific heat of any solid element making it useful in heat transfer applications. With a density only about half that of water, it is the lightest solid element.
