Caption: Lithium metal. Image 2 of 2. Lithium is a soft reactive metal of the alkali metal group. When freshly cut it has a metallic lustre. However, it rapidly reacts with oxygen in the air, giving it a coat of dark lithium oxide. To prevent this, lithium metal is usually stored in oil. For this block straight after being cut, see image A150/365.
