Even though gold and silver are most commonly used in jewelry making, they are not the most precious metals in the world.
Rhodium: The most expensive precious metal in the world
This precious metal is extremely rare. You can best describe it as an inert silver-white, hard, corrosion-resistant transition metal. Rhodium is considered a noble metal. Pomegranate prices are much higher than gold prices. It was first discovered by William Hyde Wollaston in 1803 and named so because of the rose color of one of its compounds. You can find it in platinum or nickel ores along with other platinum group precious metals.
