Magnesium ribbon. Magnesium, with a chemical symbol of Mg, is a silvery-white metallic element belonging to the alkaline-earth metals group (II) of the periodic table. Around 80% of commercially- produced magnesium is extracted from seawater. Its alloys are extremely lightweight and are widely used where weight reduction is important. Magnesium is highly reactive and burns with an intense white flame when ignited.
