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.
