Indium metal is a solid and silvery-white material at normal pressure and temperature. Indium metal is so soft that you can cut it very easily with a knife and scratch it with your nails.The main use of indium metal is as indium tin oxide, it is transparent, but has a good electrical conductivity. Therefore it is used in nearly every modern display device. In nature indium metal is found in fewer than 10 minerals, such as Roquesite (CuInSn2), and it can be extracted easily. Indium metal occurs also in smaller concentrations in the most common minerals such as sphalerite and chalcopyrite.
