This is the periodic table of elements, can you see aluminum?

Couldn't find it? look below

Each of the differant forms of elements on the periodic table have differant coloured text to classify them and show if they are solids , liquids, gas etc. Aluminum is grey because it is a solid.

Aluminums atomic number on the periodic table is 13, and is placed as a solid on the table.This shiny smooth metal has an atomic wight of 26.98154, and has a melting point of 660.37C, boiling point of 2467C, specific gravity of 2.6989 (20C), and valence of 3.

 
 

Pure aluminum is a silvery-white metal. It is soft, light, relatively nontoxic, with a high thermal conductivity, and high corrosion resistance.  It is easily formed, machined or cast.  Amluminum is second in metals in terms of melleability, sixth in ductility, is not magnetic and does not spark.  Aluminum coatings are highly reflective of both radiant and visible heat.  The coatings form a thin layer of protective oxide and do not deteriate like silver does.
