LONDON, April 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- About Rare Earth Metals Rare earth metals comprise 17 chemical elements in the periodic table, which include fifteen elements of the lanthanide series, and scandium and yttrium. Scandium and yttrium are also considered rare earth metals as they are found in the same mineral ore deposits as the other elements of the lanthanide series. Rare earth metals have unique physical and chemical properties, which make them suitable to alloy with other metals in applications that require properties such as enhanced magnetic strength and high-temperature resistance.
