Iridium is a rare and dense platinum group metal that is valued for its resistance to corrosion and high temperature stability. Extracted as a by-product of nickel and platinum ores, iridium is used to manufacture autocatalysts, dimensionally stable anodes, high temperature crucibles, as well as dental and jewellery alloys.
