Formula:
(Rh,Pt)
Colour:
Silver-white
Lustre:
Metallic
Hardness:
Crystal System:
Isometric
Name:
Named in 1803 by William Hyde Wollaston, who discovered the metal, though it was not a native mineral. The name is derived from the Greek rhodon (ῥόδον) meaning 'rose', for "the rose-colour of a dilute solution of the salts containing it".
