Rhodium is a hard, durable metal with a shiny silver appearance and high corrosion resistance. It is one of the rarest metals in the earth's crust.
Rhodium-based catalysts are widely used in industrial processes and other applications of organic chemistry.
Rhodium is used as an alloying agent that improves corrosion resistance and increases the hardness of platinum and palladium.
Rhodium-containing alloys are used in spark plugs, advanced laboratory equipment and in thermocouples.
In jewelry making, they are galvanized in white gold or platinum, extremely thin layers of the precious metal to give a reflective white surface, this is a process known as "intermittent rhodium".
