Magnesium is an alkaline earth metal that has the symbol Mg in the periodic table of elements. Magnesium is a fairly strong, silvery-white, light-weight metal (one third lighter than aluminum) that slightly tarnishes when exposed to air.

In a powder, this metal heats and ignites when exposed to moisture and burns with a white flame.

It is difficult to ignite in bulk, though it is easy to light if it is shaved into thin strips.

Once ignited, it is difficult to extinguish.
