Cerium (Ce) is a chemical element that is part of the lanthanide group, commonly known as “rare earth elements”. It is found only in small among generally less than fifty parts per million in the earth. Yet it has extraordinary properties as a ductile, malleable, highly electropositive, and very pyrophoric element – it is the only element besides iron that sparks when struck. Cerium has a wide range of applications across industries as diverse as petrochemicals, optical instruments, automobiles, radiography, magnets, and motion picture lighting.
