Sample of the element magnesium (Mg) rotating. Magnesium has the atomic number 12, and is a light, reactive alkali earth metal. Its alloys are extremely lightweight and are widely used where weight reduction is important. Magnesium metal is highly reactive and burns with an intense white flame when ignited, which has led to its use in flares and fireworks.
