Is aluminum a naturally occurring metal?

    It is one of the elements on the periodic table, but it is never found in nature by itself. Rather it’s extracted from a mineral called bauxite through refinement. An electric current must be passed through it to break bonds with oxygen and melt it down to molten. At this point other
    metals are added to the liquid aluminum turning it into an alloy. Most of the products associated
    with aluminum such as aluminum foils and cans are made from such alloys.
