Aluminum Changed the World in Its Entirety

Looking back at the history of metallurgy, Aluminum was once valued far higher than any other metal on earth, even gold or platinum. In the early days of aluminum's discovery, no one had discovered an easy way to refine it or make it strong and useable. However, approaching the early 19th century, new production techniques resulted in the price of aluminum dropping 1200 percent.
