Lead metal, also known as Plumbum or Blei, possesses a silver-bluish white to gray lustrous appearance and tarnishes upon exposure to air. It has no odor and is insoluble in Water at ambient conditions. However, it is soluble in dilute Nitric Acid and Alcohol. It can be easily machined, extruded, or drawn into shapes due to its soft and ductile nature. On a commercial scale, it is primarily produced by roasting and reduction of its ores, namely Galena (Lead Sulfide), Anglesite (Lead Sulfate), and Cerussite (Lead Carbonate).
