A much more abundant element on the sun than on earth, scandium is still widely distributed on earth, occuring in over 800 mineral species. Scandium is a silvery-white metal that develops a yellow or pink tint when exposed to air. It is relatively soft and is chemically simialr to the rare earth metals. Scandium's light weight and high melting point suggest applications within the aircraft industry.
