Iron is a shiny, greyish metal that rusts in damp air.

Iron is the fourth most common element in the Earth's crust and the most common element by mass forming the planet earth as a whole.

Most is used to manufacture steel, used in civil engineering (reinforced concrete, girders etc) and in manufacturing.

There are many different types of steel with different properties and uses. Ordinary carbon steel is an alloy of iron with carbon (from 0.1% for mild steel up to 2% for high carbon steels), with small amounts of other elements.
