Zinc is a metallic element, with atomic number 30, a post-transition metal, member of group 12 of the periodic table. Coins containing 99% zinc were cast as early as the 1300s in China, during the Ming Dynasty; with industrial production beginning in 1720 in East Asia. Production grew rapidly after 1840, with the discovery of great zinc mines. Currently, zinc is the fourth most commercialized metal worldwide, only behind iron, aluminum and copper. Zinc is a relatively active metals, although it forms very stable compounds, it is also a key component in the forging of brass and other metallic alloys. The element itself is also an essential mineral in human diets, especially in baby development.
