Metals have a long history of
use in magic. One of the most common uses is the engraving of planetary
talismans and other sorts of talismans on circles or squares of the metal
that corresponds to the intent. This will be a rather short section, containing
the planetary correspondences for metals and some of their traditional
magical uses. Most of the metals are those that have been around for a
long time rather than modern discoveries, and most are readily available
except for mercury which is very poisonous and in any case is liquid at
room temperature which makes it quite difficult to engrave anything on
it. Substitute aluminum for mercury.
