finery2 a furnace in which cast iron is transformed into the more malleable wrought iron; refinery.
gold a precious yellow metal chemical element that has seventy-nine protons in each nucleus, that occurs in pure form as a very dense, lustrous, highly malleable solid, and that is often mixed with other metals to make it harder and stronger. (symbol: Au) [1/11 definitions]
iron a chemical element that has twenty-six protons in each nucleus and that occurs naturally in a variety of compounds such as minerals important in the earth's crust as well as the biologically essential cytochromes and hemoglobin, and that can be isolated in pure form as a silver-white dense malleable metal that rusts rapidly in air, can be easily magnetized, and is widely used in a variety of alloys. (symbol: Fe) [1/16 definitions]
lead2 a chemical element that has eighty-two protons in each nucleus and that occurs in pure form as a very dense, malleable bluish gray metal used in many applications requiring high density, such as radiation shielding, shot, and weights. (symbol: Pb) [1/10 definitions]
metal any of several solid mineral elements, such as silver, bronze, or copper, that can conduct heat and electricity, are malleable under heat or pressure, and typically form salts when combined with nonmetals. [1/2 definitions]
nickel a chemical element that has twenty-eight protons in each nucleus and that occurs in pure form as a dense, hard, but malleable silver-white solid metal, used in alloys such as stainless steel and as a catalyst for various chemical reactions. (symbol: Ni). [1/4 definitions]
nonmalleable combined form of malleable.
palladium a chemical element that has forty-six protons in each nucleus and that occurs in pure form as a dense, malleable, corrosion-resistant silver-white solid metal, used esp. as a catalyst and in alloys. (symbol: Pd)
platinum a chemical element that has seventy-eight protons in each nucleus and that occurs in pure form as a dense, highly malleable, lustrous silvery white solid metal, used as a catalyst, in a variety of alloys, and in making jewelry. (symbol: Pt) [1/2 definitions]
