Cerium

Cerium, when pure, is a steel-white metal, ductile and malleable. In moist air, it is superficially oxidized. Cerium is a strongly "pyrophoric" or spark-emitting metal, both in the pure state and in the form of some of its alloys. On this account it has been greatly used in recent years in petrol-lighters and other similar sparking devices. its salts are employed in the gas mantle industry, and, to a small extent, in photography.
